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.

It has been a particularly short week this week as the school had to be shut after lunch on Wednesday due to snow.  The children were very excited and went home looking forward to making a snowman and having snowball fights.  Unfortunately that meant that the activities for World Book Day had to be cancelled.  I'm sure a lot of the children were disappointed as they couldn't come into school to share their favourite books and have hot chocolate, but rest assure, we are hoping to reschedule.  
The children have immersed themselves in the fable, 'The Hare and the Tortoise,' by creating small figurines and race tracks out of playdoh.  They have then retold the fable using their figurines to help them.
The maths this week has focused on revising the column method for addition.  The children are doing very well particularly when they have to borrow.
A short but busy week and I hope everyone has enjoyed the snow.
Wrap up warm!
Have a snowy weekend.
Class Crantock!
