Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

The theme of this month's Christian Home Education meeting was World Book Day. For those who wanted to, we could choose one of our favourite books to review and dress up as the characters from that book. We chose Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and in preparation for the meeting we reread the book and completed our book review.
The front cover of our book review
The children wrote their own summaries, used adjectives to describe the main characters and chose their favourite part. They gave it a star rating of 5/5 stars and said what lessons they had learned from the story.
All dressed up and ready to go!
At our meeting the children presented their book review.
We designed packaging for Wonka bars to give out after our talk.
As an activity for the other children we brought Willy Wonka play dough for them to design their own sweets and edible delights!

Our family really enjoyed listening to the other children's presentations.

One of their favourite activities was making Gruffalo biscuits. Yum!
