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 6

The Easter holidays are nearly upon us and what better way to celebrate than by having an Easter craft afternoon. We started by designing patterns and faces on our boiled eggs which were then entered for the competition at the Easter Fayre. I was impressed with the individual designs and efforts from the children in Pentire class. However, we didn’t want to stop with the Easter art activities, so we had a go at making 2D Easter eggs with patterns using cotton buds as paint brushes. Finally, we finished the afternoon by creating Easter Bunnies using a range of origami instructions. As the spring term draws to a close, I would like to say a massive well done to every child in Pentire class for their hard work and effort this term. It has been a super term and I am proud of all the children’s achievements and team work. Well done Pentire and enjoy a well-deserved Easter break!
