Our topic this term is Chocolate. We will be immersing ourselves in our learning by talking about books – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will be our main focus but we will also be looking at Grendell: A Cautionary Tale About Chocolate. Grendel is a little monster who adores chocolate. So when he is presented with the opportunity of making three wishes – guess what he does? In this take on the King Midas story, a wish that everything he touches would turn to chocolate has the inevitable consequences. In P4C we will be exploring what happens when you make choices.
