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.

Hello and welcome to Towan's May blog.
 
It has been an extremely busy month in Year 5 with the summer term in full flow. Our Literacy has been focused on the writing of suspense thrillers with some exceptional work being produced! Our Maths has been based around the use of angles and the properties of polygons. 
 
Our Science has been investigating spherical bodies in space with some amazing investigations into outer space. The Ancient Egyptian day, a true highlight of the month, went down a storm and will be (in)famous for the mummification of mackerel and some incredible outfits! 
 
Another fantastic month Towan!
