Miss Shearer’s Class take on Willy Wonka

Miss Shearer’s Year 8 are reading Roald Dahl’s autobiography ‘Boy’ as their class novel. It’s clear Roald Dahl had a very sweet tooth as a child, and his experiences with sweets and chocolate as a young boy gave him the inspiration to write his best-selling novel ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’. As part of our study of the novel, our class decided to take on the challenge of designing a brand new type of sweet or candy bar! We started by conducting a taste test with the old fashioned sweets Roald Dahl mentions in his book, then we went on to design our posters and find effective vocabulary to describe how our sweets might taste!

Our class worked really hard on their designs, and we came up with some absolutely scrumdiddlyumptious ideas! Congratulations to our three winners!

1st Place – Tyler Nicholl
2nd Place – Sarah Cowan
3rd Place – Luci Hume
Honourable Mention – Aliyah Monthe
