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.

Residential Year 3 - Carnyorth Camp June 2018

Year 3 Camp – Carnyorth

On Monday 25th June a group of Year 3 children set off to Carnyorth Camp.  They were brimming with excitement as they clambered onto the mini bus.  When we arrived the children met Jon, our instructor who went about explaining the Carnyorth camp rules in which flossing and having fun were not allowed!  In the afternoon of the first day we went for a long walk and completed Minors Cluedo.  On Tuesday we took the canoes and kayaks and went paddling at Newlyn Harbour.  The children absolutely loved perfecting their paddling skills out at sea and enjoyed a dip and some fun games in the water.  That evening we had a BBQ and played games outside.  On our final day the children tested their skills and nerve as they took on the challenge of the climbing wall and archery.   At the end of the trip the group were awarded a very rare and special award by Jon for being really awesome.  He said that he had never given out the award before.  All in all it was a very successful camp.  The children were such fun and behaved impeccably and were a joy to take away.
