Learning for Life

Y4 Curriculum

Autumn 1 2019

This half term, the children will be learning about ‘chocolate’. We will use a cross-curricular approach to study ‘chocolate’ in as many of our subjects as possible. 

As you know, we began our topic with a whole class bake of chocolate brownies. We made so many that the smell filled the playground.  Over the next six weeks, the children will learn about the history of chocolate as far back as the Mayans and the Aztecs; cocoa’s arrival in Europe; locations in the world that cocoa is grown and cultivated; fairtrade and the development and production of chocolate as we know it today. We will consider the health benefits of cocoa and the importance of a healthy and varied diet in addition to designing and making our own chocolate bars in DT. 

We hope that the children really enjoy our ‘chocolate’ topic.
