Autumn Learning Journey - Scrumdiddlyumptious

We’re going to enjoy a yummy journey of discovery, sampling fantastic fruits and tantalising treats! This half term, we’ll follow the journey of the cacao bean from harvest in Central and South America and Africa right through to the factory and finally the shops.  We’ll have a visitor come to Hudson who is a chocolate expert and we will find out about the  chocolate making process and then make our own chocolate.  We will look at the history of chocolate and the story of bean to bar. We’ll design our own chocolate wrappers and sample different types of chocolate.

We’ll explore the world of Ronald Dahl and the wonderful Chocolate Factory of Mr. Willy Wonka. We’ll create our own characters with descriptive language to bring these characters to life!

We’ll taste samples of fruits and vegetables so we can investigate them using our senses. Will we like everything we taste? We’ll try different types of bread, and maybe even bake our own. In art and design, we’ll look closely at fruits and vegetables and sketch what we can see. We’ll follow recipes and learn about foods from around the world. Our science work will focus on food groups and how food can be altered. Will we be able to create bouncy eggs, chocolate play dough, edible slime or exploding chocolate drops? Using fruits and vegetables, we’ll make musical instruments and sculptures.  Finally, we’ll invite you to sample some of the delicious foods we’ve made. We hope you’ll like them! We’ll sing songs about food and play our vegetable musical instruments. We’ll even explore TV adverts from days gone by and how they compare to the adverts of today.
