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 22.06.18

Well done to Max and Holly for their DOJO certificates.
 
This week we have been finishing our poetry writing and started looking at the story of The Three Little Pigs. We have been reading the story, changing the animals in and coming up with some more interesting language 'WOW' words for the way the animals move and how they feel.
 
In maths we have been re-visiting position and direction where we have been outside directing each other around the playground and we have also been having a go at estimating the answers to sums and the amount of objects in a picture. 
 
In art we have been looking at sculpture and Brendan Jamison building with Sugar Cubes. We built sculptures using multilink cubes. 
 
For ICT we use 2create which allowed us to have a go at making mini presentations. We wrote a sentence about the beach or pirates then drew a picture and added keywords.
 
In P.E this week we have been practicing for Sports Day and then on Thursday with our coach we have been having a go at cricket which was great fun! We were shown how to hold the bat correctly and we were keeping score of our runs - we could earn 2, 4 or 6 points depending which colour cone we got to.
 
You will have had a trip letter now for Charlestown which we are very much looking forward to. Please could you send the slips back ASAP.
