Charlie’s Chums


Charlie Bucket and Willy Wonka are the two obvious main characters. But what about the others?

Think about the other characters in the story. Grandpa Joe, Veruca and her father, Mike Teevee and his mother, Violet and her mum, as well as Augustus and his mum. What are their characters like? What is your opinion of them? Do their characters change? Do they learn any lessons? Have you learnt any lessons from them?

It would be great if you could comment on some of the questions above. Maybe you could write your own character description of one of the characters.

This week, you will also notice lots of Wonka Bars around school.image.

These Wonka Bars will have different questions. Have a look and Blog your answers below.

Have a fantastic week- enjoy all of the activities!

  1. To begin, I am really excited about this week. The characters are so varied and the messages each character brings to the story ( plus Willy Wonker’s reaction to them) are so strong and really make you think. Have a great week , love Mrs Witham

      1. My favourite sweet would be a big gold and silver and green gummy bear that was very chewy and sweet. It would have a golden wrapper.

  2. Violet Beauregarde likes chewing gum and talking. They are not good things to do at the same time. She doesn’t do as she is told and is very rude.

  3. Veruca Salt is spoilt and greedy. She doesn’t take no for an answer and keeps arguing back. The squirrels decide she is a ‘bad nut’ and throw her down the rubbish chute.

  4. Roald Dahl adds lots of detail to his writing so you feel you know the characters. He tells us about their appearance but also adds more information by talking about their actions and giving them appropriate names. He wants to either make you like the character (and be on their side) or hate the character. There is a message in the story about the sort of child you should be. ;-D

  5. Charlie’s grandparents are Grandpa Joe and Grandma Josephine and Grandpa George and Grandma Georgina. All 4 of them share the same bed. It’s the only bed in the house because they are so poor.

  6. The Wonka Bar question I found asked, “Where were the most important rooms in the factory.” They are all underground as they are too big to fit above ground. It might also be so nobody knows what’s inside them. πŸ˜€

  7. I have very strong opinions on the five children and five adults…

    To begin: Veruca Salt…
