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.

January 2019

What a busy start to the year we have had. 
The children are working very hard in their new Literacy and Maths groups. In Maths we have been learning how to add and subtract using a variety of methods such as counting on and back in 1's and 10's, doubling and halving and using the column method. 
In Literacy we have been learning about Roald Dahl, we have written detailed character descriptions based on the book The Twits. We have been focussing on producing neat handwriting, correctly forming all of our letters. We have also been working on using the correct punctuation in our sentences including capital letters, full stops and commas. 
The Roald Dahl Day was a fabulous success. It was amazing to see so many children dressed up as various characters. They took part in lots of fun activities such as making popping candy jelly and designing and creating Roly-Poly birds. We were able to share our learning with the whole school in our Year 2 assembly. 
In History and Geography we are learning we are leaning about the history of the hurling. We were lucky enough to have Mrs Nash join us and speak to the children about the history of the hurling and how the game is played. We then took part in our own hurling game, which the children thoroughly enjoyed. We look forward to finding out much more over the next few weeks.
