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 fairtrade 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 fairtrade products that can be purchased, both fresh produce and also products made with fairtrade ingredients.
Challenge 3 - Planning the 'Big Lent Walk' Event
Challenge 4 - 'Learn with Us' - Open class afternoon to make fairtrade products to sell

Year 6 In Action
The children have been learning how to use classification keys to organise information. They particularly enjoyed perfecting their skills classify Haribo! They were then able to transfer these skills to classify a range of birds and animals.
The pupils were able to use their circuit skills, learnt in science before Christmas, to produce a steady hand game. This project combine the skills of constructing a metal course as well as creating a casing to hold the electrical circuit. The pupils design included the use of light or sound to indicate when the challenger touched the metal course! Fancy a go? You will find a selection of games on the 'Spotlight' display!

Just as a planted seed starts to grow, the word of God starts to deepen and grow within us.
