Eagles Fair Trade afternoon

We investigated what the term 'Fair Trade' might mean this week by playing a game. The children split into 'countries' and were allocated resources - some more than others. Each country tried to use their resources to make flowers to sell to Mrs Holt, a well known international flower trader. It was very interesting to hear words such as 'profit' and 'marketing strategy' being used completely off the cuff by Year 5 and 6 children! The children als learned about fluctauting market prices and supply and demand.flowers
