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 15th June 2018

Another packed week in Watergate.
 
We have been doing more writing, practising sentences and using our phonics to write words. Most children wrote the middle of their 'What Goldilocks Did Next' story. They are doing really well. And they are really keen to keep writing words and sentences - they have been doing so independently in all sorts of places and media.
We have also been practising the formation of capital letters. These are important as every sentence starts with one.
*Next week we will send home 2 sheets - one for letter formation, upper & lower case, and one for number formation practice.
 
Maths has been doubling & writing numbers, both in number sentences and practising writing numerals with the correct formation. We will be looking more at this over the coming weeks.
 
We've been outside quite a lot as it's been such lovely weather - reading; writing; observed drawing; and generally having fun!
 
PE was over in the big field again, this time with footballs. The children practised kicking to each other then into a 'goal'. Early days, I know, but from most of the children the England team have nothing to worry about competition wise - though I'm not sure that's saying much?!
 
And we made a Father's Day card - so Happy Father's Day to all of those out there!
