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

Welcome back everyone! Our topic this term is Tudor explorers and the children will be learning about the life and adventures of Sir Francis Drake.  The children are very enthusiastic and so far they have researched some information.  They have also started work towards a Tudor portrait and looked at Elizabeth 1st, a key player in Tudor exploration, creating a mind map of significant events in her life.

 

This week in Towan the children have been storytelling a biography of Usain Bolt and have been working hard to come up with actions.  They have also created their own story map to help them learn the text.

 

In Maths they have been learning about negative numbers and beginning to apply these to real life problems.

 

In PE the children have worked on their passing and dribbling skills in football and in gymnastics have worked in groups to create different balances using different points of contact with the floor.
