What are our Workshops like?
Pre-school and Primary Schools As teachers will know, many primary schools have chosen chocolate as part of their National Curriculum studies and children are learning about chocolate through the early years, usually 1-6. As part of this study children will learn about the history of chocolate. Where chocolate originated from and the origin of the chocolate bean. Then the process is discussed from the chocolate starting off as a bean and then the journey then to the chocolate bar. This covers, subjects such as Geography - (country where originated from) Also, the history of chocolate dating back to the early years. Some aspects of Science are involved in the ingredients, food and nutrition and how the chocolate is made. In the workshop, we discuss the literature content that has a chocolate theme, e.g. Charlie and The Chocolate Factory secondary schools children are studying chocolate in Science and Food Technology. So, why not run a chocolate event during their study period or end of year Enrichment Week. Chocolate Collective run tailored chocolate making events, classes and lessons relevant to the age the children. If required, we are happy to reinforce your teaching by a short question and answer session on the topics of your choice too. The sessions are run within the school timetable and accommodate breaks and lunchtimes and are made visually informative.
