Charlie and the Chocolate Factory  summer camp, worksheets, cooking and fun activities KS2 EFL TEFL

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory summer camp, worksheets, cooking and fun activities KS2 EFL TEFL

This was Day 1 of my Roald Dahl themed EFL summer camp. It includes art activities, games and cooking ideas based on the book 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'.The day followed this plan: Introduction 1. Introduce the story and characters 2. Students use the worksheet to draw themselves in the style of Quentin Blake and write about their favourite things. 3. Allocate students into teams and they introduce themselves to the rest of their team. Team Games 1. Chocolate relay Race - Students must run to unwrap the chocolate twix bar and then feed it to the next person in their team. 2. Balloon Popping Game - In teams students must throw the darts to try and pop the balloons. The team to pop the most wins points. 3. Golden Egg and Spoon Race - Students must race around the room, against the other team, whilst balancing an egg on a spoon. If they drop the egg they must restart and go again. The winning team wins points. 4. Design a candy -Introduce different ingredients (unscramble the letters for EFL) -Taste Test (students try to describe what they are eating whilst blindfolded) - Introduce Willy Wonka’s strange inventions. - In teams the students must think of a new type of chocolate bar/candy. -Students draw and describe their invention using the worksheet and make posters. - Teams present their invention to the rest of the class (my personal favourites were flying insect sweets and 'King Candy' that tasted like gold and made you feel like royalty for an hour... kids can be so imaginative!) -The most interesting new candy invention will win points. Art and Crafts 1. Clay Photo frames -Using coloured card, PVA glue, paints and clay students decorate their individual photo frames. 2. Photobooth Props - Students make props and costumes for the photobooth- including small hats, funny hairstyles, bowties, cut out candy bars and golden tickets on sticks that they can hold and pose with. A group photo is then chosen and printed to go in the frame as a fun reminder of the camp. Cooking 1. Willy Wonka Bread - Students spread butter or Nutella onto their sliced bread and decorate with sprinkles. These sandwiches can be cut into shapes and eaten.. - As they eat their sandwiches students can watch the movie with subtitles. - If they finish early or don’t want to watch the movie they can complete the wordsearch worksheet. 2. Chocolate fondue and fruit slices on sticks. 3. Wonka fudge and Oompa Loompa cheesecake pops- I found these online and have included images and links to the recipes in the ppt. 4. Augustus Gloop Chocolate Slime -Again found online. I did not have time to try this with my students but there is a link to the instructions. *Not edible!

Monthly Writing Prompts Progression/Assessment {editable}

Monthly Writing Prompts Progression/Assessment {editable}

I created this pack primarily to observe the progress of my students throughout the year. The prompts are designed to be used without any preparation beforehand. Each month *should* show some progress. The prompts are designed to be as simple as possible to allow for a variety of answers. I staple the sheets to make a workbook and at the end of the year, I have a complete workbook of evidence for my literacy coordinator. Obviously students will be much more creative when they are prepared for written tasks, however the idea of the prompts is to challenge students, very much like unseen text when reading. I have included 2 versions to use: • A 'print and go' version • An editable version for you to type your chosen prompt for the month The pack also includes a mini self-evaluation sheet for students to complete. PLEASE NOTE! 1. I have included a colour copy and an ink-saving copy to give teachers an element of choice. 2. You will also find extension pages for more prolific writers. OPTIONS: • Colour/bordered: guided handwriting lines • Colour/bordered: alternate handwriting lines • Blackline/bordered: guided handwriting lines • Blackline/bordered: alternate handwriting lines • Plain 3. Each page has a monthly topper. As schools differ on their starting months, alternative have been provided for August and September. Alternatives have also been provided for: • October/Halloween • November/Thanksgiving • December/Christmas • April/Easter 4. Many schools finish between the months of May and July. For this reason, I have provided alternative text for these months. Just choose the correct printing options for your needs. ********************************************************** CONTENT • Cover • Teacher Notes • Contents • Colour/Blackline Workbook Covers - boy and girl versions • Colour/Blackline 'Print and Go' Monthly Writing Prompts • Guided/Alternative handwriting lines/extension pages are included - bordered/plain/colour/blackline • Editable version for teacher to type own writing prompts • Mini self-evaluation sheet for students to complete • TOU/Credits PAGE COUNT: 99 ********************************************************** Teacher's Toolkit Writing
