Question: What do chocolate, gloves and a knife and fork have in common?
Answer: The ability to cause mayhem and tonnes of fun and laughter in the Tower Block on a Monday evening after-school!!
Monday 24th September was the eagerly anticipated chocolate themed Girls’ Night led by the lovely Miss Haydon. TH4 was once again full of buzzing, positive energy and excitement and, more to the point, chocoholics!!!
The evening began with us experiencing the fine art of chocolate tasting. In our groups, we were challenged to identify a range of chocolates; some tastier than others! The selection included the legendary Cadbury’s Milk chocolate, smart price chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate. Naturally, much of it got demolished although the particularly bitter tasting 70% extra dark chocolate was kindly left for the staff room! We then took part in a quiz to learn more about the history of chocolate, however the fun really started in the final activity. This involved taking it in turns to roll a dice in groups and if we rolled a 6 we had to put our blazers on back to front, put on a pair of gloves, pick up a knife and fork and eat as much of a giant slab of Dairy Milk (still in the wrapper) as we could! Each time somebody else rolled a 6, the gloves and knife and fork had to be passed on! Laughter filled the Tower Block and much fun was had by all..even if we did all leave feeling slightly sick!
Thank-you to Miss Haydon for giving up her time to lead the session. We are looking forward to what awaits Girls’ Night next week….
