Our Children’s Committee met recently to discuss what we can do for Fairtrade Fortnight. They created a mind map of ideas.
The children decided to use some Fairtrade ingredients to bake banana cup cakes. We followed a recipe and we had lots of measuring and weighing to do.
The cup cakes tasted yummy! We thought it would be a great idea to sell the ingredients in our Family Fun Bags to allow everyone the chance to make Fairtrade banana cup cakes at home.
We have been learning about Fairtrade goods. We have been thinking about where our food comes from and the importance of food producers and workers around the world being paid a fair wage. We held a Fairtrade shop in the nursery and raised £277.65 to support Rainbow Turtle Fairtrade shop. http://www.rainbowturtle.co.uk/
We visited our local Sainbury’s store and identified many Fairtrade goods including flowers, sugar, chocolate and bananas.
We made chocolate and banana muffins using our Fairtrade purchases. They smelled lovely and tasted yummy!
Glenwood Family Centre supports Fairtrade goods. At our recent Fairtrade sale we sold £337.83 worth of Fairtrade goods. We looked at food packaging and can identify the Fairtrade logo.
We have been learning about Fairtrade goods and what it means to be fairtrade. We use fairtrade goods whenever possible such as for our Coffee and Chats and for some of the snack foods available to the children. We use Fairtrade tea leaves on on the light board for sensory exploration. The children can recognise the logo and are producing a display of Fairtrade goods.
From Wednesday 18th-Friday 20th February we have a broad selection of Fairtrade goods available in the nursery for purchase. The Fairtrade stall is manned by staff, parents and children. Thank you to everyone who is supporting this venture.
