Last week you created your very own Roald Dahl characters, now this week is your chance to write your own short chapter based on our class text 'Charlie and the Chocolate factory', you may even want to use you character within your story. 


I have included a powerpoint that includes a few starter activities to get your ideas flowing and useful tips and words that you could include in your writing.

You may want to structure your writing in the following way: 

Opening- describe the scene

Build-up- something magical might happen and lead up to your main bit of writing. 

Dilemma- Something goes wrong! Someone may fall in the chocolate river, or get sucked up a tube/machine you decide, use your imagination! 

Resolution- Who comes to the rescue and saves the day! 



Challenges to include in your writing:


Descriptive similes 

Adverbs- describing an action- 'they quickly clambered' or 'they frantically held on' 


How to make you sentences even better: 

Subordinating conjunctions- while, because, after, when, before. Follow the the following link for a reminder of subordinating conjunctions- 


Prepositions- in, during, because of, over, near, until, above, behind- they give more detail on where something has happened.
