Years 6 Autumn T1&2 (A) Topic Web – Chocolate
Shakespeare – RSC
In preparation for watching a live stream performance of Romeo and Juliet by the RSC, Year 6 got to know the story through a drama workshop. They also spent a lesson insulting each other using Shakespeare-inspired insults.
We had a fantastic visit from the Ministry of Chocolate, learning lots about the history of chocolate, how it is made and best of all making our own. Carl the chocolate man also taught us the importance of looking for the fair trade symbol when buying chocolate as that ensures that the farmers are getting a good deal.
