Year 2 proudly explained their project work to their families this afternoon. The exhibition, ‘A Celebration of Fairtrade Food’ began with a short presentation by all the children. Parents were then taken on a tour: ‘Around the World in 10 minutes’ to describe the learning that had taken place on the food, growers and cultures of the countries involved in Fairtrade.
Parents then enjoyed a closer look at all the wonderful work as the children proudly showed them round the three exhibition rooms. Coding played an important part in the afternoon as the children taught the parents how to build a moving LEGO vehicle and then code it with an iPad. The brief was to make a vehicle that could leave the UK, travel to another country, collect the Fairtrade food and then return to the UK.
Many thanks to all those who attended and helped to make the final event of our project a great success.
