Opening the gold double doors, Willy Wonka and the rest stepped gracefully into a new land, The Candy Jungle. A whoosh of the mint chocolate leaves came rushing over when suddenly the Oompa Loompa’s caught a jelly monkey. Suddenly Charlie felt a hard rock-like thing drop on his head. He looked up and saw a tree full of ever-lasting gobstoppers. Charlie reached up to pick one, then it jumped out of his hand and viciously hit Charlie’s Grandpa in the nose. They started to walk calmly towards a less humid area of the Jungle, but Mr Willy Wonka stopped them with his walking stick. “Stop!! There’s a fizzy river here don’t fall in.”
Mr Willy Wonka explained about the orange tango waterfall, the most glorious thing in candy-land. “It is about 9ft deep, so you don’t want to fall in.” mentioned Mr Willy Wonka. “Did you hear that grandpa! 9ft deep!” commented Charlie. Just as he spoke his words, a jelly monkey came whooshing by on a stretchy strawberry string. “Hey!! Give me back my hat you rascal!!” stammered grandpa. “Don’t worry, it’ll come back with your hat, all creatures a made with a special jelly so they give back what they take.” mentioned Mr Willy Wonka. In the end, Grandpa got his woolly hat back.
“Oh, and you will love when it rains or it gets foggy.” whispered Mr Willy Wonka. “Why?” asked Charlie. “You’ll find out soon…” replied Mr Willy Wonka. “Is it good or bad?” asked grandpa. “Oh it’s good alright,” replied Mr Willy Wonka. Just then Mr Willy Wonka stared at his watch for about 5 seconds. “It should be coming any second now.” announced Mr Willy Wonka “I can’t wait!” declared Charlie.
Suddenly some candy-floss clouds came swiftly over the mint chocolate trees. “Wow!” called Charlie. “That’s not it…” replied Mr Willy Wonka. As quick as a flash it started raining nerds! “Should we hide under one of those mint chocolate trees?” suggested grandpa. “Sure.” replied Mr Willy Wonka. So they rushed under one, but something was on grandpa’s head. It was a chocolate spider! “I hope you have fun with the factory when I’m gone.” stated Mr Willy Wonka as he bit right into a mint chocolate leaf “I don’t know where to start!” exclaimed Charlie. “How about the candy-cane hooks up top.” replied Mr Willy Wonka. “Good idea I can climb with them, but first I need to get to the top of the trees. So Grandpa gave Charlie a lift up to the trees where he could reach the candy-cane hooks. “Charlie, do you need any help getting down!” called Grandpa. “No thanks,” replied Charlie, “I can use these hooks to safely get down.” Charlie could see the whole of the Candy Jungle from where he was. Eventually Charlie climbed down successfully. Later Mr Willy Wonka walked away happily with a great big smile on his face. “All I need to do now is tell the Oompa Loompa’s I’m in charge now and tell my family the tragedy involving Mr Willy Wonka…

Remember, you must use the prompt exactly as it is written. Make sure you really think about the words you use because you only have 107 altogether.
About 50 miles from town there is a town called cupcake village. The royal, posh house was buzy and tidy. A little girl lived in this house but she was very, very spoilt. The sweet, chatty little Miss Spoilt was popular and mini.
The next day she got in her mum’s long, gold car and went to school.
“ I want that!” it was a massive gold dress. (Gold was her favorite colour)
“I promise it will be in your room in 1 and a half hours.” replied little Miss Rich, her mum.
“Make it half and it is a deal” snapped Little Miss Spoilt.
“Anything for you honey.” she said, thankful as they arrived at school.
In the greediest town of Greedville there lived a blue, greedy little girl called a Little,Little Miss Greedy, the daughter of Little Miss Greedy.Little,Little Miss Greedy lived in a kettle shaped house with a rectangualer,pink door. Little, Little Miss Greedy had the most unusual garden, not to mention house, (it’s obvious that if you have a house shaped as a kettle it would steam in the inside.)
Bang an avalanch of smoke and dust floaded the area. Soon an oddly shaped space ship appeared. Suddenly a door opened and out came a green charactor called little Miss Alien. The 5 eyed, smiley little Miss Alein was funny yet easly annoyed. Little Miss Alien lived in a wacky excentric house with seventeen green windows and a pointy stick on top of it. Later on Mr Tickle was walking to school when he came across little Miss Aleins space ship. Mr Tickle was intreved so he walked over intull he got to the steps then he knoked on the door.
Little Miss Alein opened the door and stared at the odd orange creature.
“pongle slatta lata parr.” blerted out little Miss Alein.
“Do yooou Speek English?” questioned Mr Tickle.
“Ow yes where are you going?” repeted little Miss Alein
“Well um I am going to school.” ended Mr Tickle and then he went over and started flapping around with her anteni.” ow my eyes are aking.” protested Little Miss Alien.
“sorry .”frowened Mr Tickle.
As you may have heard, a previously unpublished chapter of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has recently been published.
As you read the chapter, you may notice that a few of the characters are different from the final, published version. Why didn’t he add this chapter? Why did he change some of the characters? Even great authors, such as Roald Dahl, continuously edit their work before they are happy with the final version.
Imagine that you have found another unpublished chapter of the story. What new room in the Chocolate Factory would Mr Wonka take the group to? Could it be a room made from marshmallow or jelly? Who works in this room? What mischief could one of the characters get up to and what would be their consequence? Would you want to introduce any new characters? For example, Peppa Achu, a girl who is allergic to quite a lot of things.
So, what do you need to do?
Write a new chapter for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and email it to email@example.com or hand it in to me by Friday 3rd October 2014. All entries will be displayed.
What must your chapter include?
– Mr Wonka.
– Charlie (you can choose if it is his Grandad or Mum who is with him).
– A new chocolate room where something (good or bad) happens.
– At least 1 more character.
There will be a prize for one person in each year group
I am looking forward to reading all of your exciting and imaginative chapters.
Good luck J
The Vanilla Fudge Room is from an early draft of Roald Dahl’s most famous novel. With new illustrations by Quentin Blake
The Vanilla Fudge Room
The remaining eight children, together with their mothers and fathers, were ushered out into the long white corridor once again.
“I wonder how Augustus Pottle and Miranda Grope are feeling now?” Charlie Bucket asked his mother.
“Not too cocky, I shouldn’t think” Mrs Bucket answered. “Here – hold on to my hand, will you, darling. That’s right. Hold on tight and try not to let go. And don’t you go doing anything silly in here, either, you understand, or you might get sucked up into one of those dreadful pipes yourself, or something even worse maybe. Who knows?”
Little Charlie took a tighter hold of Mrs Bucket’s hand as they walked down the long corridor. Soon they came to a door on which it said:
THE VANILLA FUDGE ROOM
“Hey, this is where Augustus Pottle went to, isn’t it?” Charlie Bucket said.
“No”, Mr Wonka told him. “Augustus Pottle is in Chocolate Fudge. This is Vanilla. Come inside, everybody, and take a peek.”
They went into another cavernous room, and here again a really splendid sight met their eyes.
In the centre of the room there was an actual mountain, a colossal jagged mountain as high as a five-storey building, and the whole thing was made of pale-brown, creamy, vanilla fudge. All the way up the sides of the mountain, hundreds of men were working away with picks and drills, hacking great hunks of fudge out of the mountainside; and some of them, those that were high up in dangerous places, were roped together for safety.
As the huge hunks of fudge were pried loose, they went tumbling and bouncing down the mountain, and when they reached the bottom they were picked up by cranes with grab-buckets, and the cranes dumped the fudge into open waggons – into an endless moving line of waggons (rather like smallish railway waggons) which carried the stuff away to the far end of the room and then through a hole in the wall.
The beautiful sea crashed against the edges of the Columbia, a steamliner, that I am on board. I am also English but I am in France on my way home from the ferry port. The captain was yelling at people because we were stranded in the middle of the Sea with one life boat, I had no idea that had run out of fuel. Some of the words he was saying sounded like a foreign language that wasn’t even French!.
While he was yelling at us we decided that a few of us would try to get help using the life boat, and so we sailed off. Suddenly the ship started sinking rapidly! This was bad!

First of all let me say a big hello to you all from sunny and stormy Thailand! I’ve been here for few weeks now and thought that I’d let you all know how I’m getting on. I’m having a great time here and have spent the first few weeks settling into a place that is very different to Manchester and setting up my classroom at my new school. I have met some of the children but will not meet the whole class until later next week which is actually the start of our school year. Luckily we will also be learning about the Greeks over the next half term so I hope that we will be able to help each other out with our learning once we get started here. What sort of things have you found out already?
Things are very different here, for example each of the children is given a Thai name when they are born but did you know that they are also given an English nickname too which they use whenever they’re speaking English. This could be a shortened version of their Thai name or the name of an object or item. What nickname would you choose for yourself? Also we take our shoes off before entering the classroom as a sign of respect and teachers are allowed to wear slippers in the classroom if they choose to!
I hope that you have all made a super start to the new term and I’m sure that 5OB are wowing Miss Benson with all of your amazing work! I look forward to hearing from you all!
Goodbye for now!
One fine sunny day, I was eating a bowl of cereal and there was no milk on the table so I got up and went over to the cupboard. As I opened the cupboard door, I stepped back in amazement! I coulden’t belive my eyes! I was so startled that I fell backwards onto the floor! It was a huge wave of milk bulging in a bag of rice crispies! And yet my brother was trying to snatch it off my mum and this was all going crazy!!! “Wow!” I exclamed as a wave of milk crashed all over me and everyone around me! This was totally crazy!
