Year 5 Spring Term

After an exciting space topic, we are now busy looking at Fairtrade. This week, we have started making our own ‘Fairtrade’ football cushions, using sewing skills. Thank you to the adult helpers who came to support us. Luckily the conditions are better than the factories used to be before Fairtrade!

 

We are enjoying finding out about different Fairtrade products and how these support the workers and communities in which they are made or grown.

 

To complete our unit, the children will be making their own packaging for their footballs. Any boxes of old toys you might have lying around would be appreciated.

 

We can’t wait to see the finished products which will be going home at the end of the Spring term.
