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 5th October 2018

This week in Mawgan Porth we have been practising for our Harvest festival celebrations whereby we have learnt songs, created a poem to perform and have made vegetables out of natural materials. We are very excited about our trip with year 2 on Monday.
 
We have become reporters this week in literacy and our classroom has been our office. The children have been paid with dojos and we have had to have our eyes and ears alert to breaking news! We have written an article about the adventures of Supertato and the mischievous evil pea, ensuring that they had a bold and catchy title. 
We then wrote about a real life hero that we have been learning about- we identified the facts we know about Florence Nightingale considering, Who? What? When? to help us plan a news report about her.
I was so impressed with the children's handwriting, we focused on letter formation and writing on the line. Keep it up!
 
In Maths we have started to learn about addition. We took our learning outdoors to add different values together- we sang "add the parts to make the whole" as we added leaves and blades of grass together. 
 
In PE, we raised our heart rate with various cardio movements before practising ball skills. The children have shown great improvement since the first week we practised dribbling and passing. Well done!

 
Congratulations...
to Rocco and Sydney who both received a Certificate  of Achievement for fantastic writing! Super work :)
