FairAchiever School Award

We are a ‘FairAchiever School’.

We successfully secured the Fairtrade award at the highest level in August 2019 and are hoping to receive the award again this academic year- keep your fingers crossed for us!

Fairtrade Ambassadors will be appointed this term. All classes will have their own ambassador which all children can apply for by creating a poster- details for applications have been shared and entries are coming in thick and fast. Watch this space for our new ambassadors for 2021-22!

To find our more about Fair Trade, why not watch the video below and then try the activity?

It is called ‘Guardians of the Rainforest!’

‘Guardians of the Rainforest’  is about the cocoa farmers who are working together to protect the Gola Rainforest in Sierra Leone, West Africa. The story is told by 14-year-old Beshey, whose family have been cocoa farmers for generations.

After watching ‘Guardians of the Rainforest‘, have a go at the activities on the sheets.

Here are our favourite two activities…

  1. Create a poster for forest-friendly chocolate

Tasty, organic and forest-friendly! What more could you want in a chocolate bar?! Your challenge is to create a poster to advertise forest-friendly chocolate. Use eye-catching pictures and make sure your text stands out! Watch the full version of the film for inspiration.

  1. Design a forest-friendly animal deterrent for Grandmother Amie

Grandmother Amie scares chimpanzees away from the farm with a drum. This does’t harm the animals but it does stop them from eating her crop. Can you design another forest-friendly way to stop animals from eating her cocoa?
