The Co-op in Haddenham is celebrating Fairtrade over the next two weeks.
In 1998 Co-op became the first supermarket in the UK to sell Fairtrade products in all their stores.
For two weeks each year at the end of February and start of March, thousands of individuals, companies and groups across the UK come together to share the stories of the people who grow our food and drinks, mine our gold and who grow the cotton for our clothes — people who are often exploited and underpaid.
Fairtrade Fortnight 2021 is taking place from 22nd February until 7th March.
You may find the quizzes in the links below offer a some welcome variety for home-schooling:
There's also a virtual visit from a Fairtrade speaker (16 minutes duration) aimed at school age children, with plenty to learn for grown-ups too. You'll find lots of resources for other activities in the link as well:
Here's some info on Fairtrade that may be of use/interest to help with home-based learning:
