Our Chocolatey Friday!

22 Sep 2019

On Friday, we visited York Chocolate Story to link in with our current history work on Ancient Maya. 

We started off our visit by having a tour of the Chocolate Story. We learnt more about the origins of chocolate, which included a taste of the Ancient Maya’s xocolat. We weren’t so keen on that! We found out about how chocolate comes from the cocoa beans from the pod and tried some cocoa, which was a little strong for some of us. We then learnt about how chocolate is manufactured and mixed for at least 3 days. They let us have a go at being chocolate tasters, and we watched chocolate truffles being made with a taster at the end of course. Our tour was completed with an activity for the children to make and decorate their own chocolate lollies; the children enjoyed adding as many toppings as possible! We were  chocolated out by lunchtime!





After lunch, we took part in a workshop about Ancient Maya and chocolate. The children learnt about the origins of chocolate and the importance of it to the culture of Ancient Maya. Back then, the royalty and rich were the only people who had chocolate and then it was in the form of a drink called xocolat. The children made their own xocolat and then compared the taste to modern day hot chocolate. It’s fair to say that the hot chocolate was by far the favourite! 








The children were brilliant throughout the day, and we had a lovely day together.
