CADBURY WORLD LAUNCHES BRAND NEW POETRY WORKSHOP AIMED AT KS2 PUPILS

In line with the current primary school English curriculum, Birmingham-based attraction, Cadbury World, has announced an all-new poetry workshop.

Titled ‘Can you create your own performance poem?’, the workshop will encourage pupils in years 5 and 6 to work in groups to create a poem about a chocolate machine.

The workshop aims to support the curriculum by developing students’ understanding and enjoyment of stories and poetry. There will also be opportunities to further children’s understanding of the different forms of poetry – specifically the importance of tone, volume and action when reading aloud. Pupils will also be given the chance to write a poem as a group and read it out loud.
To support the launch, Cadbury World will be running a school poetry competition, challenging pupils to submit a poem about a cocoa bean. The winner, which will be announced on World Book Day (Thursday 7 March 2019), will win a class trip to Cadbury World, including a talk or workshop of their choice, to be taken in May, June or September 2019.
Diane Mitchell, marketing manager at Cadbury World, said: “Our poetry workshop, held in one of our dedicated education rooms, will not only provide an opportunity to advance children’s understanding of the genre but will also help them to develop their social skills as they participate in a group learning environment.
“Cadbury World has over 27 years’ experience in hosting educational talks and workshops and we are proud to welcome over 2,000 school groups each year.”
Group visits are currently available at £9.80 per child, including the talk, for a minimum of 25 paying pupils. One free adult will also be admitted for every eight children.

Cadbury World Offers curriculum-linked geography talk for KS3 and KS4 pupils

Midlands based Cadbury World is teaching students about the importance of geography for businesses through a curriculum-based educational talk for school groups of up to 110 students.

Using Cadbury as a case study, the talk introduces students to a range of geographical topics including; globalization, location, primary, secondary and tertiary industries and sustainability.

To illustrate the workings of an international business, the task looks at Cadbury’s parent company, Mondelēz International, and its Cocoa Life initiative in partnership with cocoa farmers in Ghana for the past ten years. Pupils will learn about the company’s ‘five pillars’ and how they impact the farmers.
To reveal the importance of location for businesses, the talk uses Bournville - home of Cadbury World - as an example to show how it benefits from an ideal location in the heart of the country, with excellent transport infrastructure and access to a large potential workforce.
Pupils will also learn about the different industries Cadbury works with, including farming cocoa beans, transporting materials and manufacturing products to retail outlets that sell the final product to the consumer.
Finally, the talk highlights the sustainability goals that the company has already reached via its ‘sustainability wheel’ as well its vision for the future.
Diane Mitchell, marketing manager at Cadbury World, said: “The story of Cadbury, combined with the experience of running a modern international business provides pupils with real-life insight into the importance of geography.
“Students will be encouraged to ask and answer questions during the talk and will even have the opportunity to handle cocoa beans to help them to fully understand the origins of Cadbury chocolate.”
More educational talks are available covering topics including science, business studies, leisure and tourism and ICT. The talks are tailored to the curriculum and allow teachers to mix and match topics to cover specific areas. There’s also plenty to learn and discover through an informative self-guided tour of the attraction’s chocolatey zones.
Cadbury World has over 27 years’ experience in educational talks and welcomes over 2,000 school groups each year.
Group visits are currently available at £9.80 per child including the talk for a minimum of 25 paying pupils. One free adult will also be admitted for every eight children.
