CHOCOLATIER VISIT FOR DISCOVERERS
As part of their ‘From Bean to Bar’ topic Discoverers had a visit from a real Chocolatier. Oliver came into school to talk to the children about how chocolate starts as a bean and the process it goes through to end up as tasty chocolate. The children learnt lots of new language reated to the process including- tempering, winowing, nibs harvesting and fermenting. The children had fun turning the melted chocolate into different shaped chocolates adding detail by piping different coloured melted chococolate through a piping bag. They took their chocolate home to enjoy!
Discoverers Class had a lovely time on their visit to Hopwood Woods on Wednesday. They enjoyed cooking sausages for lunch and marshmallows as a treat. They learnt how to pitch tents and set up a base camp.
They took part in a Treasure Hunt and made some shelters with natural materials. They all had a wonderful time!
