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 2nd November 2018

Mawgan Porth have had a fantastic first week back after the half term break. It's lovely to see so many brains refreshed ready for another fun half term.
 
This week we have been working hard to learn our common exception words (red words). We have also begun our topic for this half term- Seasons! Everyone did a super job of working well in a team to create posters of things that remind us of the four seasons. They're going to look amazing up on display!
 
In maths we have been comparing groups of objects to decide whether there are too many, not enough or an equal amount. The sunny weather allowed us to take our maths learning outside and use items from nature to compare numbers.
 
This weeks topic lesson focus has been the story of Guy Fawkes. Mawgan Porth wrote some very interesting questions that we would like to ask him and created eye-catching Wanted posters, to help the King find Guy Fawkes. They remembered to use their full stops, capital letters, finger spaces and phonics sounds, and even some amazing adjectives! We also learnt about how history is relevant to events we celebrate today, such as Bonfire night. 
The children watched firework display and made their own fantastic firework pictures. 
We then used adjectives and similes to describe the fireworks. 

 
Well done for a super week! 
Congratulations to Rafferty and Ellie for their Record of Achievement certificates this week. 
You have both shown a fantastic attitude to learning, well done.
