What is Fairtrade? What does it mean to you?
Here is what some of the children at William Law said about Fairtrade.
William Law is a Fairtrade school.
We learn about Fairtrade through assemblies and in our curriculum. Year 5 research the life of banana growers as part of their ‘What’s the cost?’ topic. In year 3 children explore issues of fairness for cocoa growers. As part of RE lessons, year 6 discuss Fairtrade and welcome visitors from Traidcraft. Mrs Crossan will also be running a KS2 Fairtrade club in the summer term.
We use Fairtrade products whenever possible (including tea, coffee and sugar in the staffroom.)
We take action for Fairtrade. To share our learning and to encourage others to get involved in Fairtrade. In previous years we have spoken at a conference in Ken Stimpson School, planned and ran a stall at our Summer BBQ and Christmas bazaar to raise awareness of Fairtrade products and held our own mini workshop for a small group of visiting pupils from Hampton Hargate School. This year we are planning to run a whole school design a Fairtrade poster competition and will display the winning posters in our local Tescos store for the community to see.
