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 12.10.18

What a busy week we have had this week!
 
On Monday we went down to the church for our Harvest festival. The children performed songs such as 'Cauliflowers Fluffy' and 'If you're grateful and you know it' with great gusto. 
 
We have continued writing our fact files this week in Literacy. We've been creating sub headings and answering questions such as Where do they live and what do they eat? What do they look like? We've been working hard to include conjunctions including 'because' & 'and'. 
 
In Maths we have been telling the time to half past and o'clock then having a go at quarter past - Mrs Blown was very impressed with our time telling! We made  clocks on our tables and made the times too. With Mrs Milsom we have been looking at money, counting money and making amounts in different ways. We used our knowledge of place value to work out how many pennies and ten pences we would need to create different amounts. 
 
On Wednesday we spent the day at the Cornish Birds of Prey Centre. We had a fantastic day looking at all of the different species and answering quizzes.  We watched a flying demonstration and had a talk from Andy the centre's resident expert. We were introduced to the burrowing owl called Twig and a giant grey owl named Cobweb! Huge thanks to all of the parents who came along to support us, your help was very much appreciated. 
 
It was assessment time in Swimming today, every child has made massive progress since the start of the term. We have one more session after half term.
 
Next week is Active  & Healthy week - we will be joined on Monday by Paralympian Melissa Reid who will be talking to us in assembly then spending time with each year group. We will also be trying our Yoga, Boccia and Skateboarding. Please send your child to school in clothing suitable for sporting activities.
 
Please come and join us on Wednesday afternoon where we will be designing and making a healthy lunchbox. Parents are welcome from 1:30 - 3pm. Please send in cereal boxes/shoe boxes next week.
 
We will then be breaking up for half term on the Thursday and returning to school on Tuesday 30th October.
