Spring Vehicle - Trading up!
During the 'Trading up!' vehicle the children will learn about Fair Trade and how CAFOD use this to help develop self support systems for communities around the world. The children will in turn help plan the schools 'Big Lent Walk' event and run their own stall to raise the profile of CAFOD's work and sell products to raise money to support farmers overseas.
Challenge 1 - What is Fairtrade?
The children used their geography lesson to research the origins of fair trade and the positive impact it has on farmers all over the the world.
Challenge 2 - What products can we find locally that support Fairtrade?
Year 6 visited the Co-op to learn more about fair trade products that can be purchased, both fresh produce and also products made with fair trade ingredients.
