Our first lesson involved some fun and games with the use of chocolate. They had the chance to play the ‘Lucky number 6’ where they tried to munch chocolate as quickly as they could before someone rolled a number 6. Not so easy whilst wearing gloves and eating with a knife and fork! They also enjoyed the ‘Chopstick Challenge’ and the ‘After Eight’ game which involved trying to eat chocolate with using your hands.
Year 2 also had the chance to draw a chocolate machine to show how they think chocolate is made. We had some interesting ingredients and the children showed some very imaginative ways of mixing them together to make a chocolate bar.
In English we have been focusing on performance poetry with a chocolate theme. The children have tried changing their voices to add expression and have made up actions to bring the poem to life even more. They were particularly excited to perform their poems to Year 1, who gave them feedback on their performance.
Wow, what a fantastic start to the term!
