Some of the children acted out a scene to show how trade can 2 Days =£3.20 lead to farmers getting less and less money for their crops and how we can 3 Days =£4.80 help them. It was really interesting and we are glad we know what we can 4 Days =£6.40 do to make it more fair. 5 Days =£8.00 Helpful Hints: Communication It is really important to check your child’s book bag each night after school. Newsletters are sent home on a weekly basis and we do send other letters and communication as well. Staff are concerned at the amount of what appears to be unread information left in children’s bookbags each day!
