Green Day

From Fair Trade came to talk to the children about what Fair trade is and does. She explained that it’s all about giving the people who produce the things you buy a fair price for their work. Lots of people in poorer countries have to sell their goods at prices so low that they can’t make a decent living. When you buy something with a Fairtrade logo on it, you know that a fair amount of the money is going towards helping the community where it came from. She had brought in 20 Fair Trade products to show the children. At the end of the talk she had covered up the items and asked the children if they could remember them. She was very impressed when they remembered all 20. Squirrels made chocolate crispy cakes using Fair Trade chocolate . They also did a word search puzzle. Rabbits class made a fruit salad using Fair Trade fruits.
