York Chocolate Story


In addition to our classroom work about The Maya, an ancient civilisation in America, Year 3 had the opportunity to visit The Chocolate Story in York to widen our alreqady fantastic knowledge.

We attended a workshop where we had the chance to make their chocolate drink however it was far from the chocolate drink we love today.. Hot Chocolate. The Mayans enjoyed their chocolate drink cold, bitter and frothy with no sweetness. 3LB much preferred the chocolate drink we have today! After our workshop we were lucky enough to visit the chocolate factory where we learnt about the history of chocolate, famous chocolate brands and how chocolate is made today. We EVEN got to make our own chocolate lollies! Overall, on behalf of year 3 I can say we had an absolutely brilliant day!
