From chocolate DIY and choco-sculptures of Lady Gaga's shoes, to the world’s LARGEST chocolate sofa and terracotta warriors weighing in at a MASSIVE 250kg of chocolate each, we were in chocolate heaven! "I couldn’t believe that the sofa was made from chocolate!" exclaimed Ruby from 3C.
Once there, we all divided up and went on our own chocolate adventures. Squeezing the milk and white chocolate liquid into moulds was a little challenging and we had to use all our strength to get it out. " I liked making the chocolates in DIY chocolate area. We did a row each. After filling it up we went back and added patterns like swirls," commented Winston from 3L.
While some of us were waiting for our turn at chocolate making, the rest of us had a quiz to complete. This meant us exploring Fairy Tale Kingdoms, a Fashion Pavilion, and being transported back 5000 years to ancient China. "I enjoyed the quiz. We saw so many sculptures and famous buildings. It was tricky but fun," explained Bjorn from 3L.
Here are just some of our highlights:
“I liked the statues because they really looked like they were made out of stone,”Lovre Jurisic, 3M.
“My favourites were the statues of the gods because they were so colourful and detailed,” Carla Simpson, 3M.
“I loved the statue of Apollo riding a chariot because it was neatly carved even though it was made of chocolate and linked to Greek Myths,” Roy, 3W.
“I was really amazed that the Forbidden City took 6 months to build out of chocolate!” Yun Lung, 3W.
We have seen all kinds of sculptures today made out of tonnes of chocolate, and even got to taste our own creations. Year 3 certainly came back from Chocolate Land Happy!
Summed up by Gaby in 3W…”What’s not to love? Everything was made out of CHOCOLATE! There were also these little Chinese figures of gods that took over 2 weeks to build and I was not surprised at all! They were just so detailed!”
