In our first half term we will explore the origins of chocolate by learning all about the Aztecs. Our English lessons will be based on our class book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and we will be writing detailed character descriptions, writing diary entries from various points of view and then thinking about how the story might end.
Topic lessons will look at the Aztec Empire, how it was created, how they lived, how the community was organised and all about their demise. Finally we will visit Cadbury World before half term.
