  • Year 1/2
  • Fairtrade Week - Spring term 2 2018

    Here are some pictures from Fairtrade week! The children loved being involved in the café, as you can see from their happy faces. We had Fairtrade banana porridge and toast, including some Fairtrade tea and coffee. KS1 made menus, artwork and posters for the event. They enjoyed helping to make, serve and eat the food. We love knowing that the money we spend on Fairtrade goes to a great cause!
