Year 4’s Fairtrade chocolate challenge

Elmhurst School for Boys

22nd November 2013

As part of the whole school topic on Africa, Year 4 have been looking at how resources are being used in Africa.

The boys have enjoyed learning about what life is like for farmers in Ghana and how companies such as Fairtrade are trying to provide them with opportunities to improve their lives.

Year 4 were challenged to create their own Fairtrade chocolate bar, then write a script and plan an advert to advertise their product, outlining why customers should purchase their chocolate bar and how it would benefit farmers in Africa.

The boys then had the chance to act out their adverts in front of the camera (we hope to add a video clip soon).  4K also enjoyed performing an assembly to the rest of the school, outlining key facts about Fairtrade and its benefits.

Maliq Attah in 4K writes about Year 4’s Fairtrade project:

“In Geography in Year 4 we have been learning about Fairtrade this term. Fairtrade chocolate costs more than a normal chocolate bar because it gives farmers in Africa a bigger share of the profits. As we have been learning about Fairtrade, we performed and filmed a short advert about Fairtrade chocolate in groups in class. We created a chocolate bar and talked about why Fairtrade is better for farmers in Africa than normal chocolate bars. It was really fun making the advert!”
