As well as realising that we are very fortunate for the variety of food we have and the opportunities we have, we also realised that this is not the same for everyone around the world.
This led us into the idea of Fair Trade, what it is, what it means and what we can do to help and respect others by changing our own actions and habits.
We have competed a lot of research (through the fantastic www.oddizzi.com), have presented our own arguments and have produced a range of work. Much of this can be seen on our 'Fair Trade Dispaly' just outside of the year 5 classroom.
Further thoughts: Fairtrade doesn't just have to be about food. Can you research any more about Fairtrade and see how else we can have an impact. Where else can we look out for the Fairtrade logo? Success cards will be stamped for anything you can bring me.
