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 1st December 2017

What a cold week it has been! This didn't stop Watergate working really hard indoors and out, however. We came to the end of our first set of sounds in phonics and we are now finding out what the children have learnt, in the mean time we are putting our knowledge of sounds into lots of word writing practise. 
 
In maths we looked at 3D shapes and how they are different to 2D shapes. We found some shape songs that were really catchy to help us. The polydron, in particular proved very popular in helping the children make and identify 3D shapes.
 
Rehearsals for our Nativity are coming along nicely, we can't wait for you to see it. Remember it's 2.30pm on Wednesday 13th December. Can we have their costumes in by the end of this week please. 
 
Finally, a big thank you to the parents that attended the decorations afternoon on Friday. We feel it was a big success and the children loved having their mummies and daddies in school!
