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 23rd November 2018

I know we always say it! but...another busy, & long, week in Watergate
 
Thank you to all the parents who came to Parent's Evening. Sorry if you had to wait but we managed all the appointments - in the end!
 
We have been assessing the phonics now that Set 1 is finished. I've shared this with you all at the meeting and soon we hope to move on to the next part.
We also assessed some aspects of number & now all know where we are going next.
 
In maths we have been looking practically at 'one more' and 'two more' than a given number to 10 and 'one more' than a number from 11 to 20.
The number we have been practicing writing this week was number 5 - down, round, put on a hat.
 
The divas are complete - hurrah! Below are some photos of the completed lamps. They do look amazing all together shining in the dark. The children saw them in the not-quite-so-dark! But it was still a fabulous sight.
 
In PE we started learning & practicing ball skills. We rolled, then bounced, then threw a ball to our partner. I was very pleased with the listening skills of the children and the sensible way they worked. There were obviously times when balls were going everywhere - it was the first lesson after all! But they all reacted sensibly & mostly calmly.
Back in the classroom Mrs Hatton & I were both extremely impressed at the way the children help each other to get changed for & from PE. They are a very kind class.
 
After PE we had a visit from the police. No - they hadn't come to take Mrs Hatton away! They were talking to us all about their job. They showed us their equipment, how they use it & told us when they might need to. Then they showed us their van - lights & sirens, too! We even climbed in the back.
They visited as it is Road Safety Week so we had a discussion after their visit all about how to stay safe around roads.
 
Have a good weekend and stay safe, wherever you go and whatever you do. And if you do something you'd like to share do remember to send photos on dojo that we can share in class & even with Watergate Bear!
