Imagine you are a golden ticket winner and you are in The Chocolate Room.  How can you describe what it is like so you can tell your friends all about it. Think about what you can see, hear, smell, taste and touch, using exciting adjectives. Put your ideas on the planning sheet using bullet points or numbers for each idea.  Aim for at least 3 descriptions for each sense (see, taste, hear, smell, touch).
