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 12th January 2018

What a busy week we have had in Fistral class this week. Well done to Will G and Morgan who were awarded Dojo certificates this week. 
 
In Literacy, we have been learning our new story 'How to hide a Lion at School'. We have drawn story maps, decided where we would hide a Lion at our school (we had some very interesting suggestions!) and we identified coordinating words in the text.
 
In Maths, we  have been focusing on place value and using our knowledge to partition numbers in different ways, solve problems and cracking place value codes. 
 
We have begun our Science work learning about animals and their young and enjoyed matching pictures of them to show our understanding.   
 
Our week finished with a visit from the Swamp circus. Mr B the clown put on a fantastic show which had us all ooohing and aaahing! We then had an hours workshop where we learnt a huge range of different circus tricks. Mr B told us that this year is the 250th year of the circus in Great Britain, we couldn't believe it had been going on for so long. 
 
Homework this week was Quickfire 30 and spellings.  Next week's homework will consist of reading comprehension and spellings.
