The Co-op have been running a competition which will last for the duration of Fairtrade Fortnight.
They have asked children in KS2 to design a poster showing how Fairtrade products and the Co-op are linked.
Below are photos of some of the entries
This afternoon the Fairtrade Ambassadors, Taiya, Jack and Helna visited Leeds Civic Hall and attended the city’s Fairtrade Celebration which had been organised by Leeds Dec. There were speakers who gave talks about several Faitrade projects and then the children were invited to participate in workshops together with children from other Primary Schools from across Leeds.
Chocolate tasting for Divine Chocolate proved very popular!
The Buzz workshop (learning about Fairtrade Honey). Next Taiya and Helna tested their Fairtrade knowledge in a game of Trivial Pursuits while Jack tested his knowledge and made a kebab out of Fairtrade fruit.

This afternoon Mrs Walker and Miss Whiteley accompanied 4 children, Ayesh, Nishta, Harvey and Daniel to Leeds Civic Hall. The children had been invited to participate in the annual Fairtrade Celebration organised by Fairtrade Leeds and Leeds DEC.
Upon arrival the group were able to select two workshops each that they wanted to be involved in. The girls chose a bunting activity and the Chocolate game while the boys opted for Football Fever and the Buzzing Honey workshop.
The afternoon was spent listening to speakers watching Fairtrade films and participating in the workshops.
We also learnt that you can also get Fairtrade footballs and Daniel was presented with a football from company Bala on behalf of school.
This morning, Roger Robertson from local business The Beehive led an assembly. He talked to the children about what Fairtrade means, how we can help and used bananas as an example.
Roger left with Mirs Walker and Miss Whiteley a selection of Fairtrade products (chocolate, tea, coffee, biscuits, friendship bands, pens and many more items) these will be on sale after school on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
