Charlie and the Chocolate Factory lesson plans

Bring Willy Wonka’s world into your classroom with these splendiferous lesson plans which include PSHE and Literacy Objectives on identity, behaviours and rewarding positive behaviour.

Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, illustrated by Quentin Blake

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is one of Roald Dahl's best-known children's books. The story of Charlie Bucket, the five Golden Tickets, the Oompa-Loompas and the amazing Mr Willy Wonka has become firmly embedded in our culture since it was first published in 1964.

These lesson plans bring Willy Wonka’s world into your classroom and will inspire any budding inventors and would-be chocolatiers.

Students can learn how to use descriptive and persuasive language, understand how names can shape identity, invent their own wonka-inspired confectionery and write a newspaper article based on Charlie’s story.
