Students have been learning all about Fairtrade foods and other products, including cotton, gold and even footballs! They have made some wonderful, detailed leaflets explaining the benefits of going Fairtrade. They have also been given the opportunity to further develop their food and nutrition skills by making a Fairtrade recipe at home. This can be done over Easter and we would love to see pictures of any cooking or baking done!
In year 8, students have been designing a solution based on the theme of ‘Home’ as part of the V&A Innovate competition.
All completed research and design sheets will be entered into the competition and will receive a certificate.
Selected finalists will be invited to attend the annual V&A Innovate Pitching & Awards Day in the Summer Term 2021. A selection of prizes, including plaques, trophies and workshops with designers, will be awarded to winning students.
Here are just a few of the original and creative responses to the brief.
