This term the children in Year 5 have begun to explore the question 'Is our future fair for all?' From this the children will investigate a variety of topics in the aim to answer their question. We will be focusing on many current topics e.g. Fairtrade, Save the Children, Children's Rights, Water aid and many more global/sustainable issues we have in our world.
Fairtrade-The Fairtrade footballing industry
Pupils have been thoroughly engaged in the topic of Fairtrade. They have explored the life of workers in Sialkot in Pakistan and have learnt such a lot about how supporting Fairtrade impacts on the lives of these people. The children have used all of the information that they have noted to write some great letters to FIFA persuading them to use a fairtrade football in their competitions.
