Caswell & Oxwich Classes – Over the next few months, we’ll be working with researchers from Cardiff University and University of the West of England, Bristol, on a project that’s exploring children’s ideas about the changing food system. The research is looking at children’s hopes for, and ideas about, food systems of the future – especially at how they might become more ethical and sustainable. Caswell and Oxwich pupils will be involved, completing questionnaires in class this term, before participating in workshops in the spring. The workshops will introduce children to the global context of the food system and will encourage them to think about the information they need to engage critically with, and act on, complex and competing claims about different types of food. Information packs and Consent Forms are being sent home today.
