Cadbury World! On Thursday we went on a trip to Cadbury World to explore where chocolate comes from and how chocolate is made. It was very interesting and we even got to try some of the chocolate! We had a lot of fun!
To launch our new topic ‘Does Chocolate Grow On Trees?’ We received a letter from Cadbury World asking for us to solve riddles in order to find the golden ticket that we needed to get into Cadbury World. We did fanastically at solving the very tricky riddles! We also found the golden ticket which means we’re going to Cadbury World!

THE BEE FARMER
This week we had a visit from Dave the Bee Farmer. He told us lots of facts about bees. Did you know,
There are two categories of bees, the honey bee and the bumble bee.
In the Uk there is only1 species of honey bee and 24 species of bumble bee.
There is only 1 queen bee in each colony and she lays 2000 eggs each day, while the other bees have different jobs throughout there life span.
Ask your children and I’m sure they will be able to tell you many more interesting facts about bees.
An author came to visit.
Rachel Greaves who is an author of children’s books came to Yellow Class to work with the children. We acted out one of her stories, it was great fun and it helped us to remember the story and increased our vocabulary.
