MARVELLOUS models were created by Shoreham College pupils to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

The literary project formed part of the Shoreham College Junior Challenge Programme, which encourages pupils to carry out independent work twice per term.

Pupils from year one to year six worked at home on a variety of projects, based on the story of Charlie’s visit to meet Willy Wonka.

Some children chose to produce delicious new chocolate combinations or design a new Wonka sweet, some built models of the chocolate factory or designed a completely new room in the factory, and others wrote a new chapter or profiled a new character who won one of those allusive golden tickets.

Mrs Kathryn Stokes, head of juniors, said: “We want to provide opportunities for our children to develop their skills, interests and talents and to work independently beyond the confines of the classroom and the school day.

“We have been amazed at and are very proud of their many and varied achievements. This has been a very inspiring experience for all of us.”

All projects have been displayed in school, with many visitors enjoying the variety of work. Pupils are now looking forward to finding out what their next challenge will entail.
