Thu 6th Jun 2019 : Year 2 are Experts in All Things Chocolate!
If you want to know anything about your favourite sweet treat, chocolate, just ask one of our Year 2 pupils!
Pupils from 2M, 2P and 2W are now experts in all things chocolate after a fascinating and educational workshop with professional chocolatier Carl Turner from The Ministry of Chocolate.
Taking the children on a 'chocolate journey', Carl showed them cocoa pods and beans, explained what chocolate was like a long time ago, talked about how cocoa pods are harvested and told them what the main ingredients of chocolate are along with the health aspects of eating it.
The children then had a go at making two different types of chocolate themselves and finally took part in a fun quiz testing them on all the new chocolate facts they now knew.
Carl also explained to the children what Fair Trade is, which they will go on to discover more about through their topic lessons throughout this term.
Our Year 2 pupils will be delving even deeper into the fascinating history of chocolate as they learn about Mayan and Aztec culture, including their chocolate gods.
