Nursery goes bananas for Fairtrade.


We are exploring all about Fairtrade to mark its yearly focus. We were very lucky to have Lynn from Tesco come to visit with stories about bananas and chocolate.

Lynn explained all about how Fairtrade products give farmers a better deal for their crops and which symbols we can look out for in the supermarket.

We learnt where in the world bananas grow and that they grow upside down.

We learnt a poem about how monkeys open bananas with their toes but you have to hold them upside down, squeeze them with strong fingers till they pop open.

We used the special banana “toy” to chop up our banana.


Lynn also told us all about chocolate and where it comes from, we tasted dark, milk and white then voted for our favourite.

We learned so much about Fairtrade that we used it in our play “ we are having Fairtrade chocolate “

Thank you so much Lynn.
