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 11th May 2018

Heroes topic day!
 
On Friday 11th May, Year 1 came to school dressed as someone they think is a hero. We have been learning about Florence Nightingale and how she is a hero in history. Our topic day was to explore the local heroes that we have around us today; Paramedics, Firefighters and the Police. 
 
We started the day by sharing who our hero is and why we think they deserve to be called a hero- we had, doctors, nurses, policemen and women, a palaeontologist, armed forces and some superheroes too.  Miss Rowe-Best spoke about why she thinks her mum is a hero and Mrs Hodd shared that her Dad, as a former policeman and her mum, as a former nurse, are her heroes.
 
We were very fortunate to have hero visitors throughout the day to help teach us about the job and role as a paramedic. firefighter and police.We learnt about what they wear, what they use to help them, how to contact them, when to contact them and that they all help to keep us safe.
 
As a class we recorded our learning throughout the day, taking the opportunity to share new learning with each other. We were amazed by the job of the local heroes and are very excited to be offered another visit with the police, with their police car and bike after half term.
 
Thank you to Neil Lentern for sharing his knowledge as a paramedic, Sarah White from Cornwall Fire and Rescue and Al, Anita and Malcolm from St Columb Major Police station. Your involvement and support is really appreciated.
