Year 6: Maya Inspired Chocolate Factory

To launch their summer topic of Ancient Maya, Year 6 have been designing, creating and evaluating chocolates and the packaging they come in. The children have been amazed at the historical links between modern day confectionery and the sweet drink enjoyed by the Ancient Maya.

They have learnt about the origins of the cacao beans (from Central America) and how their use has evolved over centuries.

Thank you very much to Hotel Chocolat for generously donating a large number of chocolates to help our pupils learn more about the long history (and deliciousness!) of this modern-day treat.
