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 19th January

The children have had a fantastic week. We have finished learning our Gingerbread man story and the children have practised with actions to help them remember the story. We will practice a little more and then I will add a video to the blog for you to see. The children have been busy drawing pictures of the gingerbread man and writing sentences in speech bubbles.  The writing across the whole class has really improved and the children are making super progress. We have split into new phonics groups and information has been sent home so you know what sounds to focus on to further support their learning. 
 
In maths this week the children have been ordering numbers in teams. They worked very well together and had lots of discussions about number. We also looked at adding and taking away and what this looks like as a more formal calculation. The children used counters with a partner to work out the answers to these calculations. We have also been learning our double numbers to 10. 
 
In PE we have continued with gymnastics. The children have been learning different types of rolls. They found the teddy bear roll particularly difficult!
 
Have a good weekend.
