Our Blog

We are a year 5/6 (9-10 year olds) class from Bairds Mainfreight Primary School in Auckland, NZ.

You can see some of our learning that took place in Room 12 in 2010 and 2011.

NB: I have moved to a new school now so this blog is no longer active. You are still welcome to comment and look at the great fun we had over the past two years.

Thank you for all the lovely comments :)

Child Labour / Labor

Today we discussed Child Labour in the context of chocolate production.
We discovered that:

Child labour means 'children that work'
They have no running water
They use Machetes and Hazardous equipment
Their houses are poor
The chocolate people tell lies
They hadn't eaten chocolate before
They have no electricity
They work hard (6am - 4pm)
They are our age
They have no sanitation
They dont see their families
They are not allowed to go to school
