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

We have been busy on the computers this week. We have been learning to type our names in Word. This is the first time we have used word. We had to use the caps lock to make sure we had a capital letter. We enjoyed changing the size, colour and shape of the letters to make our names look colourful and individual. They all looked different. It was difficult to highlight the word to make our changes. We will be practising typing more next week.
We have been learning about keeping safe and about the dangers of strangers. The children have been discussing the ways in which we keep them safe at school and how parents keep them safe at home. They thought about how we have fire drills, lock the doors at night and hold their hands to cross the road. Some children discussed how they wear protective clothing to ride their bikes and skateboards. We wrote a list of do's and don't to ensure they did not get hurt. Our list included how not to get lost, who to go to if they needed help and safe adults that they can trust. The children made posters to help other children to keep safe each day.
