Cloud Tea Monkeys

For Fairtrade fortnight, Year 4 have been reading a book called Cloud Tea Monkeys. The book began with the arrival of monkeys in the classroom, they then smelt a variety of teas and had to work out what the new book might be about. We read through the book and the children have participated in a range of English tasks based on it. They used their inference and prediction skills throughout the book. The book also linked well to Fairtrade and we were able to research the working conditions for the tea pickers and had some interesting conversations about, ‘what is Fairtrade’. The children have been able to use the ICT suite to research some faraway destinations which they can then write their own stories about.
