Day of Action for Climate Change Parents and pupils may be aware that Friday 20th September will mark another day of global action and protest, to raise awareness and understanding of the many complex issues surrounding global Climate Change. Kernow Learning Trust recognises the vital importance of educating our pupils about the developing climate emergency, and have committed as a Trust to ensuring that all of our schools work to ensure that our pupils know that they are Global Citizens with a responsibility for our global environment. Every school in the Trust has a ‘Global Learning’ Leader and all schools are currently engaging in training to deliver ‘Global Learning’ to their staff. We cannot encourage pupils to be absent from school on this Friday, due to our duty of care for our pupils, but we have decided to enable pupils to show their solidarity with the Climate Change movement through a series of initiatives in our schools in the forthcoming weeks and months ahead. Our schools will teach more about the challenges that we face through issues such as plastic pollution, recycling and saving energy. We are very proud to have Eden as a member of our Trust and so consideration of the challenges that will face our children’s generation, and how they can influence future developments through their actions is never far from our Trust discussions.

February 2019

What a busy month February was - despite the first day being snowed off and the half term break in the middle.
 
In Maths we have been learning about addition and subtraction. We have been using objects to help us find our answer as well as other methods such as 'crossing out'. The children have really got to grips with this and have shown their knowledge through mastery. Well done!
Later in the month we looked at Place Value. The children have been solving problems using their knowledge of numbers to 50 and then 100. We have also been ordering numbers from smallest to largest by looking at the 10's and 1's. We are now working on solidifying our knowledge of the 2's, 5's and 10's times tables. 

In Literacy the children have been learning the Meerkat Mail story. The children rehearsed the story using our story map, this allowed them to imitate the key language to support them when they went on to inventing their own story. The children have learnt to sequence the story in order of events and learnt about how the story was a 'Journey' type of story. The children later wrote their own 'Journey' story, something happened on each day of the week. We had some fantastic storytellers! 

Mid way through the month we had our topic day - 'All About Me!', the children came to school in as 'themselves', some were dancers other were footballers, all different and all very special indeed. We had a wonderful day writing poems and drawing self portraits.
 
We have been talking about our mental health and lots of different emotions. We looked at posters and talked about what the emotion was and discussed times when we might have felt like this. 
 
The children had a fantastic day for our 'Parent Open Day', thank you to those who were able to make it. The children learnt about how we are all different and how people celebrate different events around the world. The children listened to a story about a little girl who was celebrating the Chinese New Year. We wrote our name in Chinese, decorated dragons with different textures, made a wish for the new year and sequenced the story. 
 
In PE we have been playing outdoor games and doing dance. The  children have learnt to move quickly in different directions, work as a team and use their body to respond swiftly to an instruction. The children have made up multi step dance sequences and responded to different types of music. 
 
We finished the month with our appeal for the Cornwall Air Ambulance. Our contribution is below. And didn't we do well as a school!
