Fair Trade

This afternoon we have been learning about Fair Trade chocolate. (I wonder why Mrs Jones chose that!) 

We looked at the process from bean to bar and then each had a role to play from farmers, chocolate companies, supermarkets to shoppers. We learnt that the farmers worke d hard but didn’t earn that much. Also the profits will vary greatly depending on the customers, the crop of beans and things like the weather too.

We had fun trading beans and bars of chocolate and learnt about the benefits of fair trade.

  

Next week

This coming week is African enrichment week throughout school. Year 6 will be focusing their attention on South Africa, and will be completing lots of cross curricular activities about their culture/ heritage.

If any children want to find out some facts this weekend to share on Monday, that would be fantastic.
