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 09.03.18

Another busy, full week! Well done to Jamie and Luke for their DOJO certificates.
 
We've been very busy finishing our writing about Amelia Earhart this week in literacy. We have been writing a biography about her including facts about her personality, her greatest achievement and key events in her life. Thank you for taking the time to help fill in the questionnaire about yourselves or another adult at home to help us with writing biographies next week.
 
In maths we have been creating and answering questions about pictographs and bar graphs and working our brains very hard on our reasoning and problem solving.
 
We've started our science for this term which is animals and their habitats and looking at things that living, dead or never alive, there was lots of interesting discussion between what makes something never alive and dead which was great.
 
We finally had our World Book Day which was snowed off last week. We all dressed in our Pyjamas and wrote and illustrated our own books which we shared with our parents or friends in the afternoon. We have also been watching classic stories on the World Book Day website which is... http://www.worldbookday.com/big-little-book-corner/ 
We had a lovely afternoon with everyone coming in (thank you!) and we made book marks together and re-designed book covers and a few hot chocolates too.
