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 14th December 2018

It certainly has been a fun packed week here in Fistral class. I am sure you'll agree that our show on Tuesday afternoon was a great success. Thank you for all your support helping the children learn their  lines, they really did us all proud. 
This week in Literacy, we have planned and written our own stories based on ' Mog's Christmas Calamity'. We had a real variety of disasters taking place from Ollie's dog Buster popping the ball during a football match against Charlestown to the pizza Arthur ordered in a cafe catching on fire! We have loved writing these stories and I have seen a real improvement in many different areas of their work. 
In Maths, we have been focusing on data and how to interpret it. We have used pictograms and block graphs to answers some tricky questions. We are continuing practise counting in 2,5 and 10's and we are becoming much more confident at counting backwards too!
In Science, with Mrs Dalton we made boats out of different materials and tested whether they would float or sink. We made predictions and had great fun adding Lego to them to see how much they could carry. 
Next week we will be celebrating all our hard work this term with a Christmas party. A letter has come home about this, this evening so please don't forget to check book bags.
Can I take this opportunity to remind you that we do have a child in class with an allergy to nuts and sesame. Please can your check labels and avoid sending in any products containing these.
