Cadbury World adds new poetry workshop to educational offering

Date Posted: 26/10/2018

The new poetry workshop, aimed at KS2 pupils, are in line with the Primary school English curriculum.

Tailored towards pupils from years five and six, the workshop will encourage those taking part to work in groups to create a poem about a chocolate machine.

The aim of the workshop is to support the curriculum by developing the student’s understanding, whilst also encouraging an enjoyment of stories and poetry.

During the interactive workshop, which is suitable for up to 60 children, pupils will work together to gain a greater understanding of different forms of poetry and will be given the opportunity to read a poem out loud.

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.”

Other educational offerings

Cadbury World runs a range of educational tours, talks and workshops for Key Stages 1 to 5.

Visiting schools can tailor their trip to suit the work they’re doing within class, with talks available on topics ranging from Geography, to poetry and the ancient Mayan civilisation.

To support the launch of the new poetry workshop, the Birmingham based site is also running a school poetry competition, encouraging students to submit a poem about a cocoa bean.
