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.

Spring 1 Week 4

The week began with an engaging ICT lesson where the class were introduced to Rockstar Times Tables on the computers. This is a fantastic website; giving the children opportunities to practice their times tables and move on with their learning while competing with their friends. They even got to customize their characters and earn rewards. It is safe to say that Rockstar Times Tables was a success in Pentire with lots of fantastic maths learning and competitions taking place across the lesson.


In English this week, the children have been set a challenge to write a persuasive text: convincing the school that mobile phones would be a valuable resource during the school day. The children thought of many reasons (not surprisingly) why phones would be a super resource to support learning. Here are a few examples of the children’s first drafts in the photos below. We look forward to editing and then writing our final drafts next week.
