Going Global

At the beginning of the topic, the children brainstormed what they felt it meant to be a responsible member of their local, global and school community.

The children learnt how people traded in the past and which goods were available to past societies. They took part in a trading game between fictional, economically developed and less economically developed countries.

We have been using maps and atlases to map where many of the foods we eat and products we use come from. We studied the labels to find out where they had originated. The class were then able to identify trade links between the UK  and other countries.
Finally, after learning about global brands and advertising, the class researched and developed their own brands. They used this information to design logos that were appealing to groups purchasing sporting products or children’s clothes. They then ironed their logo on t-shirts in DT.
