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 9.11.18

Well done to all of the children on a another fantastic week.
 
In Literacy we began learning our new story, The Magic Brush. The children enjoyed all of the activities helping us to learn the story. Thank you to those parents who messaged to say just how much their children enjoyed them. Next week we will begin to write our own sequels.
 
In maths we have begun a block of work on multiplication and division. The children have focused on the 3 and 4 times tables and a range of ways of representing this. The children have thoroughly enjoyed the active way in which we have been learning them. Ask them to teach you.
 
In RE we have studied the Story of Rama and Sita and looked at the reasons why Hindus celebrate Diwali.
 
In PE we have continued working on gymnastics and have begun football which is our second unit of PE for this half term.  
 
In science we have begun our work on light. We have shared our current understanding and begun to think about how reflective materials are.
 
On Friday the children thoroughly enjoyed the workshop with Rock Steady. We have lots of rock stars of the future in our midst.
 
Have a great weekend.
