Design Technology - Food

As part of our South America unit, Year 6 researched the ingredient chocolate. We found out all about its origins and spent some time looking at the history of the ingredient in a cross-curricular way. Did you know many cultures from The Aztecs to our modern-day culture enjoyed chocolate? To surprise our loved ones at home, we refined a recipe for chocolate truffles and added our own flavours and designs. When doing this, we also learnt lots about how different ingredients need to be stored and we applied our core maths skills to scale recipes using ratio to help us!
