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 04.05.2018

Well done to Alfie and Luke for their DOJO Resilience certificates this week!
 
This week in Literacy we have started work on our story of Kassim and the Greedy Pirate. We have had lots of discussions about the Greedy Captain character and the sea creatures. We have been finding synonyms for the word said to make our writing interesting. We found words such as giggled, screeched, mumbled and shouted. We will be using these in our writing next week.
 
In Maths we have been revising our subtraction, addition, multiplication and division skills ready for our SATs tests starting next week. To help us please revise column addition and subtraction method at home. There is a poster you can view by clicking the link at the bottom for addition.
