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 08.06.18

Well done to Darcey and Alfie for their Wisdom Dojo certificates.
 
We have has a great first week back after half term, all refreshed and working hard. 
 
In literacy we have begun to look at instruction writing and how to look after our environment, beaches and oceans. We have made fish out of gloves filled with plastic to show how plastic can get stuck in the fish's tummies and to highlight how dangerous all of our plastic is when we leave it around or send it to landfill. We have been asking lots of questions and having lots of discussions too. We have been writing instructions for people to tell them how to help save the environment.
 
In maths we have done a fantastic job recapping our knowledge of money and partitioning. We can recognise all of the different coins and notes. 
 
We had our fist P.E session with Beth this week who is teaching us fielding and striking games on the field, we had great fun and there's lots of photos too! 
 
We've also been making posters to support our Saving the environment, which will be displayed in the corridor and in the classroom. 
We've also been re-visiting our ICT making pointillism pictures.
 
Please have a look at the curriculum letter that the children have come home with to see what we are up to this term and we are also hoping to go on a trip to Charlestown - please bring the reply slip back on Monday.
