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.

Wk ending 10th November

This week the children have made huge progress in their confidence and understanding of segmenting and blending words on the magnetic whiteboards. They are listening carefully to the sounds in words and trying really hard to form the words.
 
Maths has been tricky this week, focusing on counting objects to 10 and beyond, including things that we can't move as we count them! 
 
Our animals topic is well under way with lots of animal crafts being made. We are going to have 'Watergate Zoo' in our classroom next week to engage in some imaginative role play surrounding our animal knowledge. If you have any photo's of zoo trips you have been on, feel free to send them in so we can display them - along with any of your pets that the children may like to discuss. 
 
We have started learning our Nativity songs this week, and children will soon be given their parts along with some words to learn. We would be very grateful if you could support in the learning of these lines.
 
Don't forget our next open event is 'Decorations afternoon' on Friday 1st December, where you can come in and make Christmas decorations alongside your child.
