Fair trade workshop

 

Mr Costello from Nestle came in to deliver a workshop on Fairtrade chocolate and talked us through the chocolate making process of bean to bar. We enjoyed sampling different types of Fairtrade chocolate and we Also got to make some chocolate lollipops. 

 

Evie said, “ Even though I’m giving up chocolate for lent, I was able to try some because it was educational! “

States of matter

 

In science, we have been learning about how the particles move in different states of matter. In a solid, the particles vibrate slightly, but generally do not move from place to place. In a liquid, they vibrate, move about and slide past each other. In a gas, they vibrate and move about freely at high speeds. Here we are acting it out!

As it is Fairtrade week, we were lucky enough to receive a visit from Steph who works for Christian Aid. She came to talk to us about the importance of buying Fairtrade goods to support local farmers and families. We were shocked to discover how little farmers are paid for the chocolate we buy and eat!

Dog Talk 

A volunteer from Dog’s Trust came in and explained to us how to look after a dog. She informed us that dogs need lots of exercise and that owning one as a pet can be a huge responsibility. We also enjoyed learning how to teach him tricks!
