Year 7 CED: The Chocolate Factory Experience

Last week, 7y spent their Curriculum Enrichment Day experiencing batch production by working in a chocolate factory in D&T! There were 4 stations throughout the day: making the chocolates in Food, making the origami boxes in Product Design, making the labels in Textiles and making a promotional key ring in Resistant Materials.

All students were responsible for one area of the production line to end up with a batch of over 100 chocolate boxes by the end of the day. Some students even took on extra responsibilities to work as managers and quality control inspectors during the process!

They all did a fantastic job, with some students earning an "Employee of the Day" certificate for their exceptional efforts or performance.

Here is an example of the finished product that was created by 7y using batch production:

Well done to all, and we look forward to doing this with 7x on the next CED in March!
