“Bringing Learning to Life”

Spring 2 - Fairtrade

To start our Fairtrade topic, we were able to try different types of chocolate. Each chocolate bar had a different amount of cocoa in it plus some other flavours. Some tasted really nice and others were not so appetising!


In Geography, we learnt about how items are imported and exported around the world through role play. We also learnt how chocolate is made and why it is important to buy Fairtrade chocolate.


In English, we looked at the poet Michael Rosen and created poems based on some of his poems e.g. “Don’t”. We also read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in Guided reading. Some of us decided to dress up as Roald Dahl characters for our World Book Day event.
