ON THE TOPIC OF CHOCOLATE
'When discovering more about ‘chocolate’, pupils in Year 3 extended their geography skills by investigating the sort of climate cocoa grows best in and what countries. In science they looked at ‘healthy bodies’ and how what you eat can have an effect and whether chocolate is a healthy food or not. Willy Wonka sent them a letter asking them to be taste testers, so they did surveys and presented the results. Then the real fun scientific stuff started when they created healthier chocolate bars, they tasted pretty good, so they had to use their persuasive English language skills to promote them to others!’
