Before meeting Ketra in the hall we did a variety of Fairtrade activities. We started by looking at lots of food packaging and finding where they had come from using atlases.

Then we did some circle time with the theme of ‘walking a mile in someone else’s shoes’. We discussed what I might feel like to be in charge of a monopoly and part of a cooperative.   Finally we spent some time discussing whether our school was a monopoly or a cooperative. This caused lots of debate.

In the hall we played a Fairtrade game where we experienced the control monopolies can have on small farmers.
