Roald Dahl day at St Christopher’s Nursery

Who is Roald Dahl?

Roald Dahl is a very famous author who has written some of the most AMAZING stories for children. One of our personal favourites is Charlie and the Chocolate factory. We simply LOVE anything chocolate! So much so that we decided to link chocolate to our learning this week about a rainbow coloured fish.

The Nursery and Reception children worked together to create chocolate sea creatures- creatures that could swim under water to meet with Rainbow fish and play with him.

The children learnt all about the history of chocolate, where it came from and how it was made.

They then had a look at how chocolate changed state of matter when put into a microwave. When the chocolate came out of the microwave it smelled divine! We then used spoons to carefully fill the sea animal moulds and then placed them into the fridge to set. This activity was so much fun. We can’t wait to take the chocolate home to show our parents!
