In Year 6, we are finding out about trade at local, national and international level. We have begun to investigate where the items we buy are actually sourced or manufactured, and have been quite surprised to discover how far some of the products have travelled. We used Digimaps to measure the distances in kilometres for those we have imported. We were pleased to find that many items were locally or nationally produced.
We are adding to our collection and map, so remember to bring in any packaging or a photo of an item of shopping which we can add to our display.
