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

Congratulations to our award winners this week: Grace Avery and Rosa Clark. The decision this week was really hard as all the class have worked incredibly hard - well done to everyone!
We have been tackling fractions in maths this week. The children have been finding fractions of shapes and numbers and recognising how timetables link into fractions. During Literacy we have been innovating the story of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and have created our own magical vehicles and nasty villains. Science this week was all about natural and man-made rocks, we looked at photographs to identify which were which and where we they could be found. We also looked at the different ways rocks are formed. Donuts and robots was the theme for art this week as we started our unit of work on the artist Eric Joyner - great fun!
Homework this week is spellings as usual and work on contraction words.
