Green Day Autumn 2014
For this year’s Autumn Green day, we decided to focus on the very important issue of Fair trade as we thought it fitted in perfectly with our Harvest Festival which was happening during the afternoon.
Each year group did an activity based on food and Fairtrade. The children had a lot of fun whilst understanding a lot about what Fairtrade was and why it was so important. Below is a set of examples of work and also a description of what they did.
We found this very interesting and so we decided to plot the foods on a large map. We found that most foods come from very far away!
We then read the Charlie and Lola Fairtrade book and talked about what the word fair meant and about what items with the Fairtrade logo do to help workers in another country.
1A decided to make a collage of all of the foods they liked and they would look for the fairtrade logo on these foods in the future.
Year 2 looked at the story of Tea and what Fairtrade meant. They then looked at water and why clean water was important.
Year 3 watched a Chembakolli powerpoint on Fair Trade tea, discussed it and designed posters which you can see below.
Year 6 looked at the Fairtrade quiz and the coffee mix activity.
