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 20th April

Welcome Back to the Summer Term!
 
We have started back with some beautiful days of sunshine and the children have been introduced to their new topics. 
We will be learning about OURSELVES! This will include lessons about staying healthy, eating well, keeping clean, how our bodies work and learning about the people who might help us to do this like Doctors and Nurses. Our History topic is focusing on Florence Nightingale. 
The children have been excited by the new trips planned to the Forest School this half term. There will certainly be some photographs to follow showing their experiences in Outdoor Learning.
 
Please find our new Summer Topic letter posted here on the website for more detailed information about what this term holds for the children of Mawgan Porth.
We will be learning the story of 'The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch' in Literacy. The children are looking forward to designing and packing their own lunches, they may ask to help you do this at home. They will be widening their descriptive vocabulary looking at settings and characters. We are particularly looking forward to describing the pesky seagulls!
