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!

Reading, Writimg and Colouring Workbook

Reading, Writimg and Colouring Workbook

Do you have students with a range of abilities in your class? This is a purposeful activity that could be used for teaching the names of colours, clothing and some body parts. The worksheets could be used for the whole class or by those who quickly complete their given work. There are two types of worksheet. The first involves reading the given specific colours to be used when colouring particular parts of the picture of either a girl or a boy. The second worksheet allows the student to choose the colours to be used then write the colour word as a sentence completion task. If students are encouraged to use as many colours as possible, they will then be writing the words for the maximum number of colours. In total there are 24 worksheets. The use of colouring pencils or felt tips rather than crayons is suggested as there is some fine detail which might be difficult to accurately complete if using crayons. Reading, writing, the development of fine motor skills and increasing unknown English vocabulary are enabled by completing the worksheets. The vocabulary includes : pinafore, jumper, trousers, laces, shoes, pocket, collar, top, jacket, button, clasp, hair, skin, eyes, name, bow, socks, sweatshirt, T shirt, shirt, cardigan, dress, skirt, heart, stripe, hairband and belt A colour reference sheet is provided for use when writing the colour words if the correct spelling is unknown. A front cover is also included and can be used if the worksheets are being made into a booklet. This resource is suitable for all students, including those who are learning English as an Additional Language.

Book Review Activities + 'How to Write a Great Blurb' Poster

Book Review Activities + 'How to Write a Great Blurb' Poster

This packet contains foldable book review templates where students can create their own front cover. Also included is a book report activity. The foldable book review provides space for students to create their own blurb with writing lines. When folded in the middle, students write their favourite part of the book/story. I have also provided a poster that explains how to write a great blurb (clear steps). This is a fun, little project great for any age. It's important for students to reflect on what they have been reading. Recreating a book and offering their own interpretation can encourage creative thinking and help boost students comprehension/writing skills. Spelling alternatives are considered in this packet. Thank you and I hope you enjoy! Feel free to email me at teachsuper@gmail.com for any questions. ©Teach Super
