This half term our topic is, 'Where does our stuff come from?'. The children decided they wanted to launch the topic with a 'Fair Trade bake off'. The children brought in a variety of homemade bakes along with ingredients to make other delicious, healthy snacks.
We also created promotional material for fair trade products as well as creating advertising campaigns. The children were interesting in finding out where all the fruit comes from and they even calculated the food miles. Their final challenge was the taste test where they had the opportunity to taste a variety of exotic fruits from around the world.
