As part of the Lower Junior Chocoholics topic the children have been investigating the melting of chocolate. Our literacy focus at the moment is instructional writing and as a special treat the children planned and made chocolate stirrers. They had to choose the toppings they’d like to add and using their instructional writing techniques plan the task. Each child got to choose if they’d like white chocolate, milk chocolate or dark chocolate and then looked at how the different types of chocolate melted. Once the stirrers were made we put them in the fridge to set ready for home time. We were all very excited to see the finished product when we popped them out of the mould!
