Well done to to our Faith in Action Group in year 6 who baked Fairtrade cakes and biscuits for the event and also helped out on the day by serving refreshments, selling raffle tickets and spreading the message of Fairtrade.

Reception class also helped by baking fairtrade banana muffins which were delicious!

 

 

Year 4 Assembly celebrating Fairtrade Fortnight

Year 4 Assembly celebrating Fairtrade Fortnight

This week, to mark Fairtrade Fortnight, Year 4 delivered an assembly about the importance of the Fairtrade Movement. The children talked about the importance of forest-friendly cocoa farming, the need for all farmers to be paid a living income and how caring for people and the planet go hand-in-hand.  We then thought about how we can build the values of fairness into our own lives and become the ‘I’ in fair, for example by listening to others, sharing our belongings and asking friends to join our games.

Our families and friends enjoyed watching our video showing our adventures over the past few weeks as we’ve learnt all about the Fairtrade Foundation and the importance of buying Fairtrade products.

 

The Journey of a Banana

 

Year 3 have been learning about the journey of a banana in as part of Fairtrade Fortnight. The children discussed the different roles in bringing a banana to our local shops.

 

They role-played the different jobs and discussed how much each person should be paid to ensure they are all getting a fair wage.
