We have been finding out about trade links we have with Brazil and discovered what an import and export is. We have also been finding out all about Fairtrade in Brazil and how it works to support coffee bean farmers with getting a fair price for their product as well as ensuring better working working conditions for them. We first of all decided what we thought each part of the production chain deserved if the coffee cost £1. We were shocked to discover that without Fairtrade the farmer was getting a cut of only 8p. It helped us to understand why Fairtrade is so important.
Our fantastic Brazil homework
We were given the thinking challenge of working out why Roy Hodgson didn't want the England football team to play in Manaus in Brazil during the 2014 football World Cup. This led us into exploring the climate of different regions in Brazil. We created our own climate graphs for Brasilia. They were quite tricky as we had to show the average temperature and rainfall for each month.
As part of our new topic of 'Brazil', we have been using atlases to zoom in on the continent of South America. We located Brazil and then had the challenge to find out the ten countries that border Brazil. We also located some of Brazil's major cities and discovered more about its different eco-systems. We are looking forward to using digital mapping, including Google Earth to discover more about this fascinating place.
Some interesting facts we have learned so far....
Today is Earth Day, which is an opportunity for people across the globe to come together, not only to celebrate the world, but to also highlight how important it is we protect our precious planet. In Beech class, we created paperless posters outside to promote restoring our Earth, watched a video interview with the climate activist Greta Thunberg and also thought about ways in which we can reduce our carbon footprint to help protect our planet. The Earth is in our hands!
