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 11th May 2018

As we approach the beginning of SAT’s next week, the children in Pentire have been finalising their revision in a carousel of activities for Maths, Reading and Grammar. Having recapped on the curriculum again over the last three weeks, it was amazing to see the children’s incredible confidence and belief shining through in their hard work and revision. A massive well done to the whole of Pentire.

 

On Friday, we had a PSHE discussion session where the children focused on their feelings and emotions ready for next week. We looked at how we could help prevent nerves and it was excellent to listen to how determined the children were feeling. We enjoyed a range of games in PE to round off the week. The two Year 6 classes joined together to enjoy activities such as duck, duck, goose, dodgeball and cricket.
