Year 6 concluded their work on trade by learning about Fair Trade. We were shocked to find out that if a banana were to cost 30p for us to buy in the supermarket, banana plantation workers would only receive 1p. We thought they deserved more than this after finding out about how hard their job is. We got into groups and took on the roles of the different elements of the supply chain: plantation owners, workers, shippers, importers and ripeness, supermarkets and consumers. We then discussed how much each should be paid to make the situation fairer for the workers. We found out how Fair Trade operates to make sure they are paid and treated fairly.
