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 28.9.18

This week in Fistral class we have been incredibly busy finishing our story writing and learning about addition. 
 
In Literacy, we have written the final version of our stories trying to include everything we have learnt over the past three weeks such as how to use inverted commas for speech and where to put an apostrophe when we contract a word. Next week we will be writing reports about Nocturnal Animals. Be prepared to be dazzled with amazing facts about a host of different animals!
 
In Maths, we have been adding two digit numbers and ones and then two digit numbers and tens. We have also been looking at word problems, although some of the sums have been simpler it was good to see if we could read understand the language and the information we needed to make our number sentences.
 
We had a great time on Wednesday playing games with natural objects to 20 and 40 and making patterns outside in our outdoor learning area. Will be taking our learning outside at least once a week, using our natural environment to support our learning. 
 
 
Our topic work focussed on creating our own monsters/animals out of burger boxes. We decorated the outside and inside we created their habitat with everything they need to survive! Every child could explain what their creature needed and where they lived. 
 
Swimming was a great success again this week. Please be reassured if your child is feeling nervous, that the teachers at the pool are amazing at reassuring them and the children are making fantastic progress! Everyone left with a huge smile today. 
 
On Monday 8th October we will be heading down to the church for our Harvest Festival. If you are able to come along and help us walk down please let Mrs Blown or myself know. 
 
Thank you to all of you who have returned your trip letters already. Apologies again that the payment option was not available straight away. The office have sent a message explaining this. 
 
Please keep an eye out for a red coat with a fleece lining as it is still missing. We have a number of jumpers and cardigans that are not named. Please write your child's name in them, it makes it much easier to return them.
 
 
Words of the week are: child, children, Christmas, class and climb. Please help us learn them and ask us to put them into context by saying them in a sentence. 
 
Well done to Isla and Xander who were our dojo winners of the week!
