Cadbury World tours are choc-full of Mayans and poetry

Chocolate-themed attraction Cadbury World has compiled a new series of educational tours designed to appeal to school groups.

Linked to the current KS2 curriculum, a one-hour interactive Introduction to Ancient Mayan Civilisation talk follows a tour of Cadbury World and introduces students to the wonders of the ancient civilisation and its involvement in the early history of cocoa (pictured).

The attraction in Bournville, Birmingham, has also introduced an all-poetry workshop, which encourages children in Years Five and Six visiting Cadbury World 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.

The attraction is also offering KS3 and KS4 students the chance to learn about the importance of geography for businesses through a curriculum-based educational talk for school groups of up to 110 students.

The talk will use Cadbury and its parent company Mondelēz International as case studies.

Group visits start 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 has more than 27 years’ experience in educational talks and welcomes more than 2,000 school groups each year
