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.

Week ending 02.03.18

Well what an interesting week it has been! Thank you for all of your support with picking children up early on Wednesday and with the school being closed on Thursday and Friday. I have seen some fantastic photos on DOJO of all the snow some of you have had and I have been very much snowed in at home too! 
This week we started to learn about one of our explorers who was the first female pilot to fly solo around the world! Amelia Earhart has captured this children's attention and they have done a fantastic job remember facts about her - ask your child if they can tell you a fact. On Wednesday before the snow came in we had started writing a biography about Amelia Earhart which we will continue now next week instead. 
In maths with a link to our topic of explorers we have been learning about position and direction, directing each other around the playground, creating treasure maps and recognising right angles on a car journey map. We have been using language including clockwise and anti clockwise, left and right and a quarter, half or whole turn. 
Whilst the snowy weather came in on Wednesday we began to watch UP which we will be looking at in more detail towards the end of this term in literacy.
I hope you have enjoyed the snowy days and wrapped up warm, it will continue to be cold next week so please still send in scarves, gloves and hats with warm coats. 
Monday the 5th March is St Pirans day when we will be painting Cornish scenes and learning about St Piran.
