Why a Cheshire Chocolate Studio workshop?
I come to school so no travel costs/time meaning it’s less expensive for the parents and less organisation for the school.
It’s interactive and fun which aids learning.
I have over 9 years of working with children so know how to engage children.
'Amanda certainly knows how to entertain children' and
'You ran a superb party which managed the tricky balance between seamless organisation and a really relaxed, fun atmosphere'
‘Excellent presentation & delivery’ – yr 6 teacher (Mayans)
‘Amazing. More interactive and less costly than Cadbury World’ yr 3 teacher (Advertising)
I have 3 workshop options:
- Junior chocolatier – product creation
- Junior chocolatier – Bean to bar – coming soon!
- Topic based workshop
The workshops are around and hour and three quarters to two hours.
The topic based workshop can be based around a chocolate related topic you’re working on at school, examples below.
Topics I can incorporate.
- Bean to bar
- Where chocolate comes from, how it’s harvested and processed and ingredients. (Geography, health & wellbeing & technology)
- Chocolate over time
- The changing ways it’s been consumed, Mayan and Aztec links, it’s journey to England. (Geography, history, Mayans)
- Product design
- Plan, design and make a product to a budget (business/enterprise, maths)
- Brief summary of Mayans and the link with chocolate
- Design a wrapper
- Plan and design a chocolate bar wrapper (design & technology, art)
- Changing States of Chocolate
- Compare how quickly chocolate and water melt at various temperatures (Science, maths)
In addition to the educational tasks above I have some other tasks for the children to do in the topic based workshops, for example,
- creating a chocolate time-line,
- writing the word “Chocolate” in Mayan hieroglyphics and
- place the chocolate processing stages in order.
