Cadbury World trip

On Wednesday 1st May, Class 3 and 4 went on a trip to Cadbury World in Birmingham. We learnt more about the fascinating ancient civilisation of the Maya and discovered their involvement in the early history of cocoa in c. AD 900. We found out that they made a drink out of cacao pods and that this eventually became fashionable in the UK, when John Cadbury started making hot chocolate and selling it in his shops. We also learnt about the current journey of chocolate from bean to bar and, of course, tasted some yummy chocolate as well as going on rides and touring the factory.
