Edward Bryant pupils show off their flair


CREATIVE flair, teamwork and a sweet tooth all helped pupils make sure they had a fabulous finish to a choctastic project.

The Year 4 pupils from Edward Bryant Primary School were celebrating their success having taken part in a forgotten factory room competition.

Year 4 teacher Richard Waddington said: “This has been a great project for the children to get involved in and it has been one they have really enjoyed.

“It has also allowed us as a school to work in collaboration with the community.

“Seeing the children work so well as part of a team has been especially good.”

Working in teams of three, the youngsters were challenged to design a factory room that would make Willy Wonka green with envy.

They had to make a model of their room and create a brochure, which contained a floor plan, description and photographs. The idea was based around characters Roald Dahl did not include in his books.

Eight-year-old Evan-Bailey Cope said: “I have really enjoyed it. It has been a lot of fun. It was brilliant.

“Coming up with ideas for the factory room, like our Jaffa Cake shooter was good, but my favourite thing was working in a team.”

Alexia Posrica, nine, also enjoyed working as part of her team.

“We have had a lot of fun. We worked very hard on our brochure and our factory room. I really enjoyed the creative parts as I really 
like art.”

Evan Goble, also nine, said: “It has been awesome. It has been so much fun. Coming up with our ideas was good and we just kept wanting to make them better. It was good to all work together.”

The event, which was sponsored by Henry Adams and Le Salon Du Chocolat, ended with a bang last Wednesday.

The victorious teams were EOE, Jesstristem, The Three Troublemakers and Girls are Great.

The 12 winners were given a tasty box of treats, with each pupil being presented with a chocolate bar and certificate by Willy Wonka.

The winning rooms were displayed in Henry Adams’ town-centre office over the weekend.

Manager Gail Chisham said: “Working with the pupils has been fantastic. They have really put a lot of work into the project.

“The detail in the brochures and the work that went into the factory rooms was fantastic.”
