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 16th March

Congratulations to our award winners Grace P and Rosa.
 
This week we have been writing our own fables. The most common meaning for the fables was about trying and trying until you succeed, a reflection of the attitude to many of the children in our class.
 
During maths we have been applying our knowledge of multiplication and division in problem solving questions, some quite challenging as they involved division and the 8 times table.
 
Our focus for swimming was back stoke this week. For the less confident there was a lot of focus on on tummy's up and developing the confidence to relax in the water whilst on their backs. For those who are more confident there was a great deal of focus on arm technique and positioning, eg what comes out of the water first and what goes in first. Superb progress made by everyone who swamp, very impressed!
 
Tuesday was National Science Day. We had a fantastic afternoon of creating our own George's Marvellous Medicine. Great animated fun!
