Sycamore Class visited a chocolate workshop, on Thursday 13th October 2016, provided by Chocolate by Design. The chocolatier Derek and his team taught us all about the science, history and geography behind chocolate. The children really enjoyed their day and came home with some chocolate goodies that they had made.
