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.

We have been thoroughly enjoying our Rugby sessions over the past few weeks. We have been out in all winds and weathers and returned soaking and full of mud...which is exactly how Rugby should be!
 
We have a coach to help us and our activities are very exciting and challenging. We have competitive exercises with tags instead of tackling. We have zones marked out to score tries and zones to kick the ball through. It is quite tricky to do this with a rugby ball and we are not very accurate yet.
 
We had a team trial exercise this week where we went up against each other one on one. Have a look at our videos to see how well we did!

We have been continuing our route across America this week and have been learning about Tornado Alley. The children looked at the map of the states and plotted where the most tornadoes occur. 
 
The class learnt how a tornado forms and watched some video clips of real tornadoes in Kansas. We discussed both the ecological and the human impact of such extreme weather and imagined how it might feel to see your home destroyed.
