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 2 Week 2

The week started in Pentire with a focus on explaining reasoning when solving tricky word problems in maths. Having learnt about line graphs and how to compare and order fractions, the children tackled a range of problem solving challenges and had to explain how they solved the problems. In English, we have been looking at the ‘catch a lot’ video and discussing different ideas for how the story might end. The children have started planning their stories, focusing on dialogue and description, and will be writing their final drafts next week. School was cut short this week by the arrival of snow; our class were super excited to see snow. I hope everyone took the rare opportunity to enjoy the snow and kept safe.
