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 20th April 2018

Hello again!
 
We hope you had a good Easter break - not too many eggs!
 
We have started back looking at rhyming strings. We are basing this at first on the story 'Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy'. There are lots of animals with rhyming descriptions and lots of other rhymes throughout the story. We have also looked at other Hairy Maclary books and other similar stories by the same author, Lynley Dodd. The children are really enjoying the books. We will be looking at other rhyming poetry in the future.
 
In maths we have been looking at counting numbers to 20 and using a number line to count on to find a larger number. We also looked at sharing and how to share fairly. The decision was to count one at a time, then it would work out!
 
The children have been quite into 'music' this week - maybe more like noise making! They made their own instruments and used these and the instruments outside to sing & play & dance.  So creative!
 
We had our first outdoor PE session. Unfortunately the coach will not be starting until next week! but we had a good time anyway, practising the ball skills we learned last term. We also used beanbags, bats & balls and hoops.
In the future these sessions will always be outside, for us on a Wednesday afternoon. This, of course, is weather permitting but it will often be sunny and warm, it being the summer term! So it would be great if everybody could send in a PE kit consisting of a t-shirt, shorts, socks and suitable footwear to change into for either the grass or top (tarmac) playground.
