Fair Trade Fortnight 2017
Lots of exciting activities have taken place over the fortnight to help the children to learn more about the world we live in and the importance of being fair.
So what is Fairtrade?
Fairtrade is a global movement with a strong and active presence in the UK, represented by the Fairtrade Foundation. You can find out more about Fairtrade by visiting this website.http://www.fairtrade.org.uk/en/what-is-fairtrade
At Over St John's the we have looked at where different foods come from and explored maps and atlases to find the countries and track the journeys of a wide range of foods from their country to the UK. We have also explored the difference between fair and unfair.
Take a look at the file to look at the children immersed in some of the activities.
Some classes looked at how fair trade isn't just about food products but about footballs too.
