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 29th June 2018

Another week draws to a close as we head towards the end of term.
 
It's been a busy week of assessments. The children have been showing us how much they've learnt over the year in phonics for reading and writing and in all areas of maths. It was hard work but they worked hard.
 
We've also been looking at shapes & patterns in maths, especially more complex repeating patterns.
 
We had a PE session where we practiced for Sports Day which is next Friday afternoon (6th July). Interesting! We'll do more practice next week, especially target throwing & balancing things on our heads!
 
It has been hot all week as I'm sure you're aware. That didn't stop a group of girls making a 'hot tub' outside!
But also it shows the need for a sun hat and a water bottle/container. We have cups & water on tap (or should that be from the tap? anyway...) but they seem to prefer their own bottle.
Also sunscreen comes in 8 hour & even 24 hour lasting applications - something to think about as they don't always remember to re-apply.
