The Journey of our Fairtrade Egg Sculpture
Imogen and her Dad, Mr Upton, created the egg's skeleton using plywood circles around a hard tube spine. They wrapped the shape with chicken wire and then used strips of wall paper to paper mache a bse layer.
Groups of children from different classes helped to add layers of paper mache to make it stronger.
Lots of children got involved painting the winning designs onto the sculpture.
Here it is! Our Fairtrade inspired egg sculpture up in school to remind us all about the importance of Fairtrade. Well done everyone involved, it looks amazing.

FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT 2015 IS HERE!
This Fairtrade Fortnight (23 February – 8 March) we’re celebrating the power of everyday choices by telling the other half of a product’s story – the producer’s – to show the difference Fairtrade makes.
The children will be learning lots about Fairtrade over the next two weeks. Please try and show your support to our Fairtrade stall on Friday 6th March after school.
For many years, Haworth Primary School pupils have been particularly keen to make things fairer for everyone in our world. Therefore all year, we learn about ‘Fairtrade’ issues through lessons, assemblies and special events. Recently in an assembly we were shocked to hear how many children are taken away from their families to harvest cocoa beans. However, we learnt how we can make a difference by buying Fairtrade foods and other products.
There have been various occasions in the last year when the Fairtrade team have sold Fairtrade products at special events. Fairtrade products have been sold at school fairs. Furthermore, on Friday's, the children enjoy an after school 'Fairtrade' tuck shop, run by our very own Fairtrade team.
We are proud to be a Fairtrade school.
