Fairtrade Week
On Monday 6th September 2017, the school council held a Fairtrade assembly to help the school understand the meaning of Fairtrade and how the crops grow. The members of the school council are the following: Otto,Emily,Freya,Sam,Mark,Phoebe; we are a great team. The Fairtrade assembly involved pictures, speaking and questions.


One of the questions was, “Where are cocoa pods grown?“It was an amazing question from a year 2; the answer was Ghana in West Africa and Asia, Australia and South America. We also did a competition which was to design at chocolate bar wrapper,  Joseph Swainston,who is in year 5, was the 2017 competition winner. Every year at Fountains Earth we do something to remember and join in with Fairtrade.

About Fairtrade
Fairtrade is a brilliant idea that has spread all across the world. Fairtrade is a thing where in shops, people put logos on the food that has come from farmers from different countries. That logo makes sure that the farmers who have produced the item gets a fair amount of money for it. So when you’re in the shops, say buying chocolate, look for the Fairtrade symbol and get the Fairtrade things so that farmers get a fair amount of money for their product!

When we got there we collected conkers.When we got there we collected conkers.Our visit to the Pupil Voice Conference!

On the 4th of November, the School Council from Fountains Earth Primary School went to the Voice Conference in Harrogate.

We had to arrive at school and be ready for quarter past eight which was when we left. First we had to drive down to St Cuthbert’s because we were going with four of their pupils. When we arrived at the Voice Conference we checked in, and then received a bag, a pencil and a name tag.

We went to have fun, learn lots and bring lots of information back to school. Programme of the day:


  1. Indian cooking and dressing up and learning the alphabet in Punjabi.
  2. Hot seating which was talking to people and asking questions.
  3. Voice for life - drama

Lunch: a buffet with top quality food!

We met a paralympian!

We met an athlete called Kadeena Cox; she ran many races which were very successful. She entered sprinting and cycling events, winning bronze silver and gold medals in both events. Her dream was to be an Olympian but sadly she  suffered from a stroke and then later on in life became a paralympian because of her multiple sclerosis.

Altogether it was an amazing day; we had lots of fun and learnt lots of interesting facts.
