Year 6 wrapping up 'Bean to Bar'
Children in Year 6 have been on an extraordinary adventure from ‘Bean to Bar’. They have learned about the treat that most of us love to devour and they have researched some of the issues surrounding Fairtrade and the hardships some cocoa farmers experience. They have worked in groups to create their own chocolate bar and wrapper, then advertised it to a board of directors using their persuasive language, IT & Art skills. This unit was ‘wrapped’ up with a trip to the Chocolate Factory in Pattaya where they became chocolatiers for the morning and created their own delicious chocolate treats which were then rapidly scoffed! This unit enabled many cross-curricular links which made learning more hands-on, fun and engaging.
