The enquiry approach is central to this study: students will be actively involved in deciding if they would send, or be happy to receive, a Valentine’s rose grown in Kenya. They will learn that the lifestyle, material wealth, choices and opportunities that they have are not universal, and to understand the global impact - both good and bad - of their choices as consumers. This table shows how they match the 2014 National Curriculum.
