We all had fun and learnt a lot about chocolate at the workshop provided by Chocolate by Design. The chocolatier Derek and his team taught us all about the science, history and geography behind chocolate. In teams we designed our own chocolate pizzas and then made them.  All the children thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the chocolate quiz and pizza designing competition! Please take a look at the pictures below.

The children completed their topic work by:

  • creating their own chocolate lollies
  • packaging them
  • then selling them.

First they drew and labelled their lolly designs.  Next they made their own unique lolly using melted chocolate and various decorations. They then packaged their lolly and designed posters advertising the sale.
