National Chocolate Week
For national chocolate week in reception class, the children started the morning thinking of where chocolate comes from. Most popular answers were from the shop or the factory. The children were fascinated as they watched a short video showing them the cacao seeds/ cocoa beans and the huge machines that made them into the chocolate bars. The children then had a go at packing their own chocolate and creating their own labels!
They then made their very own chocolate wrappers, looked at the process of melting chocolate by making Cheerio crispies, had chocolate scented play dough which they used to make lots of different foods and also created chocolate drinks in the water area. It’s been a great start to the week!
