UPDATE NOV: added Dahl resources.

A unit of work and worksheets I made for children to analyse and produce an 'Oompa Loompa' song based on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
This also has drama / dance links!
A truly unique lesson idea you won't find anywhere.
Please note these are resources to write lyrics to a tune plus lots of other extras, mostly Literacy based. I have now included the backing track (Karaoke version to the original tune.)

UPDATE: I have added a collection of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory resources (including the first 3 book chapters and questions based on this) and additional files for the Oompa Loompa song resource

    I am quite disappointed as I was hoping for the music backing track etc. Not just a plan, that is English based etc and MS Word docs & PDF docs. I thought due to the description (Oompa Loompa Song Resource) and that I searched for 'Music' there would be NC Music links etc and how it links into that scheme of work.
    I am sure it would be good for those who intend to use it over English etc but I am unhappy I spent £3.50 on it and will not be needing any of it.
