Chocolate – our topic to spark an international debate
We’ve been finding out all about the origins of chocolate and who grows it and where. The children enjoyed a special day with fabulous Chocolatier who brought a video he’d made in Ghana showing a cocoa farm and the journey the pods take before being shipped to the UK. Its Fair trade Fortnight and so the topic links with discussions about ensuring farmers get paid a fair price for their products. The children have also written to local shops asking about Fairtrade chocolate sales and the availability of Easter treats made with Fairly traded goods.
Of course making the treats to eat was a favourite moment!
