Excellence, Aspiration, Inclusion, Respect

Yesterday, we remained seated in the hall after assembly. This was because the teachers performed an extract from Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. They had all dressed up as different characters, it was very amusing! Eventually, we returned to the classrooms, and we tasted chocolate. We started off with KitKats; tasting the original brand, the Morrison's version and the Aldi version! This activity was quite a challenge; however, it was very enjoyable. We also did this with Penguins. Then we had to use chopsticks to move some chocolate from one bowl to another. Moving the M&M's was definitely the trickiest! We had a brilliant morning to start off our new topic. By Jemima F Year 6 

When we all sat at the back of the hall, Miss de Rossi, dressed as Charlie, came running in,screaming “I got it! I got it!” She was closely followed by Mrs Jacks, Miss Fortnum, Mrs Gardner, Miss Longley and the Year 6 staff. They were all dressed up as characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Mr George, dressed as Willy Wonka, followed behind. Our first activity was to write a silly poem or story. We watched a clip, it was a poem called “chocolate cake”. It was very funny and silly. Our story or poem had to include as many chocolate brands as possible. Next we did a task where we had to use chopsticks to move different chocolates from one bowl to another. It was easier to move the maltesers, however it was a lot harder to move m&m’s. We wrote our scores in our planning books. Finally, we did a blind taste test, there were two chocolates. We had to eat three different types (original, Morrisons, Aldi) of each and guess the type. We also had to rate them. Some were better than others (mainly the original).
