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 5 - Source to Sea April 2019

The end of March was the most exciting week of all. We went on the Source to Sea camp. We started in Lostwithiel and travelled all the way down the Fowey River. It was absolutely perfect weather and we all paddled for 5 hours through the meandering river as it made it's way south to the sea.
We watched as the river changed from high banks, to sand banks, to coves and on to the harbour where jetties and boats of all shapes and sizes are made, mended and sailed. We also saw some other unexpected sights. We saw an Adder Sanctuary, a recording studio and a China Clay Plant. 
On the second day we walked across Bodmin Moor. We were looking for the source of the River Fowey. We saw the tiny stream as it began and made it's way through the open landscape. There were many different animals and tracks, fields and moorlands to see. We found lots of different bones of animals too. Simon, our instructor, told us all the stories about the Beast of Bodmin Moor. We were fascinated by the idea of a huge black cat roaming the moor and asked many questions about how it could survive.
