Year 1 made the Fairtrade logo using coloured rice.
Year R learnt about how chocolate is made and then tasted Fairtrade chocolate to see if they could tell which was dark, milk, white or a surprise chocolate. The surprise was orange!
Year 4 discussed the problems in the cocoa farming industry and how many of these problems can be overcome by supporting Fairtrade. They wrote their ideas on chocolate bars.
Later in the day Year 4 chose how to represent the various stages of cocoa production through dance.
Year 5 completed a reading comprehension on Fair Trade and created a fact file with answers to explain what Fair Trade is and how this affects farmers in other countries who are producing goods for consumption.
They then looked at the Fair Trade logo and were tasked with creating and designing their own version of this. They also looked at all of the people involved in the production of chocolate and gained a greater understanding of pay proportions each of these people receives.
Thirteen children and four parents took part in the Big School’s Bird Watch after school on Wednesday 30th January. It was a cold and snowy afternoon but we did spot some birds.
“I saw 3 blackbirds and 2 seagulls, I think I may have seen more but they could be the same ones.” - Alice Year 6
“I saw a few pigeons and a blackbird.” – Purdey Year 3
“I saw a starling.” – William Year 5
“We saw more than I thought.” – Patrick Year 1
“We saw more than last year.” – Ollie Year 2
Mrs Joy is compiling the results the children and parents recorded but we believe we spotted more birds than last year. Thank you to Mr & Mrs Bushaway, Mr Hawkins and Mr O'Sullivan who came along to support their children.
Year R looked for signs of autumn in our school grounds.
A few days later Year R created transient art from natural objects.
