‘Food, Glorious Food’ topic

During the ‘Food, Glorious Food’ topic KS2 children have been learning about a balanced diet as part  of a healthy lifestyle, finding out about teeth and digestion and reading and writing stories and poems about food, teeth and eating.

They have also been learning about some artists who make food sculptures and paintings and then having a go themselves as part of their creative homework.

KS2 had a fantastic visit to ‘Chocolate by Design‘ in Chesterfield. We arrived to be led through the small shop, on Packers Row, past the most delicious looking chocolates. More was to follow to tickle our senses. The aromas of chocolate greeted us as we descended the stairs into the cellars where all the handmade chocolates are made. Derek gave us a short talk about the origins of chocolate and how it is made, all the time quizzing the children to make sure they were listening. Sometimes chocolate bribes were used!

What we found out!

The best was to follow when we moved into the chocolate making room. We made chocolate mobile phones, fish, a massive egg and had a ‘decorating chocolate lolly’ competition. Of course we had to taste everything and we may just have got a little chocolate on ourselves!
