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.

Problem Solving Maths
This week in Maths we have been looking at multiplication and division, and exploring different ways it is used in real life contexts and problems.
 
On Thursday, we put our understanding into practise, working with a partner to solve a variety of mathematical questions in a classroom treasure hunt.
Tennis
 
We have been doing tennis in our PE lessons this half term, but this week we got a treat. Due to the fact that the Y3's were on a trip, we had an unexpected session with the tennis coach.
She had lots of ideas for games and we practised looking and aiming for space on our opponent's side of the court; first with quoits and then with tennis balls. You could see the children's understanding of game play and tactics improving dramatically.
