Our Fairtrade Christmas tree

This year we decided to have a Fairtrade Christmas tree to remind us about all the Fartrade products we can use and to show other people how important Fairtrade is. We had some amazing designs from all the classes in school and the tree looked fantastic!

Fairtrade Fortnight 2020

We are excited that Fairtrade Fortnight is here and we've had a display in the Hall for a few weeks giving clues!

Ethos group have been planning some events and we have thought about our FairAchiever Challenges. We want to work with the CO- OP and also encourage churches in Hyde and the Mosque to begin their own Fairtrade journeys. We've invited them all to our Cake and Coffee afternoon on Thursday 27th February at 2.30pm to taste drinks and baking made with Fairtrade ingredients, kindly provided by the CO-OP.

Our Collective Worship on 24th February encouraged us to look for the Fairtrade mark and to realise this mark promises farmers a fair deal. Our shopping can change the world!

Coffee and Cake - Fairtrade Fortnight

Ethos group have decided to hold this event to encourage parents and church leaders to think more about Fairtrade.

Classes are baking using Fairtrade ingredients which the CO OP have donated. We're using cocoa, bananas, icing sugar, caster  sugar, soft brown sugar, chocolate and chocolate chips.

Fairtrade at Harvest 2020

We used the family of cocoa farmers from the Fairtrade Schools resources to support our learning around family this half term and make links with Fairtrade.

Year 3 watched the Fairtrade Schools films and wrote prayers, some of which were read out in our Outdoor Harvest service. 

Different classes baked using Fairtrade chocolate and bananas and learned about the people behind the things we eat and enjoy. Year 2 learned and sang a chocolate song! Year 1 enjoyed dipping Fairtrade chocolate in Fairtrade bananas!

Harvest celebrations encouraged us to be thankful for all we have and then be generous with all that God has given to us. We collected tins and packets and gave these to the Foodbank but also gave away baking we'd made using apples from our orchard to family and neighbours.

Love to learn and learn to love
