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.

March 2019

What a great month.  What a lot we have covered.  We have leart the "Lost and Found" story by Oliver Jeffers and written our own versions.  We have worked hard in maths and learnt that fractions aren't so scary(especially when we use them to find out about cake and pizza-and healthy things like fruit.)  
 
We have found out all about the Antarctic.  We had an excellent talk by Dr Denis Wilkins a member of the British Antarctic Society.  We heard about penguins, seals, extreme temperatures and huskies (cute).   The children enjoyed dressing up and pretending to be dogs and penguins.
 
In PSHE we have learnt how we can calm ourselves down if we are feeling anxious or afraid, through breathing deeply, counting and hand massage. 
 
Lots of skills developing in hockey and we have begun to play some other games that help to keep us fit and healthy by raising our heart rate.
 
We continued our work on magnets and even learnt how to make our own compasses.
 
We ( and Me) are trying to keep our mind of chocolate with the Easter break approaching.  But lots more learning to take place before then.
