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.

Switched on learning in Year 4
Porthpean class was awash with 'light-bulb' moments today while investigating electrical circuits during science. The children shared their knowledge of electricity, in their first lesson on this topic, then got to independently investigate how to make a circuit work. Although a daunting task at first, the children soon got to grips with their collection of wires, batteries, motors, bulbs and buzzers they were presented with. After a lot of trial and improvement, and some great team work, it wasn't long until some cheers of achievement could be heard! Well done to all!
 
The class were very pleased to know that Electricity and Circuits lessons will be continued after half term.
Parents - be prepared to answer some electricity questions, the children thought of lots of things they want to know.
