Church of England Community Academy

Fair Trade

We had a series of Assemblies to find out about where food come from and who is involved in the process.  We looked at chocolate and bananas as examples and the children acted in role to discover the journey from ground to shop shelf.  The Children learned about Fairtrade and the impact it has on peoples lives.  We talked about the impact of Fairtrade and sustainable living. 

After the assemblies, the children talked in classes about the choices they can make in what they purchase and the impact this has on other peoples lives.  This linked in with our work on the UNICEF Rights of the Child as the children learned about child labour abroad and the universal rights of the child.

 

This ensures that across the academy we can;

 

learn key principles of Fairtrade and the impact our shopping choices have on children's lives.

learn about sustainable living, for ourselves and others worldwide.

consider potential conflict or issues that can occur as a result of child labour worldwide.

 

This work is part of ongoing work both in class and in the wider community which forms part of our eco-schools accreditation.  As eco-school ambassadors and a green flag school, the children regularly carry out work to explore Fairtrade and other community projects and initiatives.  Through the children's learning topics they explore the food chain and challenge the ethics behind this. For example, when year 4 completed their topic on healthy food, they explored Fairtrade food within this. 

 

Children said that 'when I'm older, i am going to buy Fairtrade products because I know they are better for everyone.  Everyone has the right to get fairly treated and paid for the work they do and Fairtrade help this happen.’
