Learning About Fair Trade!


Recently at nursery we have been learning about Fair Trade! We have enjoyed reading about Pablo the banana and learning about where our fruit comes from. The children enjoyed talking about farmers and the jobs that they do.
We extended this activity and decided to make our own banana buns using fair trade ingredients. We all worked together and took turns to weigh and mix the ingredients. The children showed pride when tasting these in the afternoon and they went down a treat.
The children loved taking on an adult role and are always so excited to wear our Leigh’s nurseries aprons when carrying out tasks. Wearing the aprons gives the children a sense of importance which then helps boost their self esteem and confidence.
Lots of love,
Everyone at Leighs xxx
