As part of Fairtrade Fortnight which ran from 27th February to the 12th March, Year 6 were very lucky to receive a donation from the Bourne Elsea Park Co Op store.
As part of their South America Rainforest topic the children have been learning all about deforestation and the impact of this on the environment and world. They had a lesson focussing on Fairtrade and ‘Forest Friendly Farming’ where they found out the importance of Fairtrade but also how farming can be done sustainably to protect the rainforests in the world. This year they focussed on our climate change was affecting farmers across the world.
The children were excited to receive Fairtrade bananas and chocolate alongside Rice Krispies to create cakes and chocolatey banana treats. We are very thankful to the Co Op for once again donating ingredients to our school. It was a fantastic experience for the children to learn about the importance of Fairtrade in a fun, engaging way. This linked brilliantly with our rainforest topic and our Eco Schools work.
