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.

We have had lots of things going on this week (including some interesting discussions on politics - what a democracy vs a dictatorship). Here is a snippet...
 
PE
We have continued - with varying success - to learn the Hakka! However we have had lots of fun doing so.
In football. we learnt about good dribbling skills. We then put these to the test with small mini-games where you had to score by dribbling the ball over the line.
 
Literacy
We started to innovate our story 'Night terrors in Cairo' with our stories 'Night terrors in Rome.' We have had lots of exciting work with some great writing.
 
Science
This week, we started learning about classifying - classifying different animals into groups of our choice. 
 
Harvest festival
On Thursday we celebrated the Harvest festival. All the classes had prepared something. From ours, we had Sophia and Evie W read out their poem which they had written. They did amazingly and we are all extremely proud of them!!! Well done guys.
 
Topic Day!!!
For Topic day. we all dressed up as characters from the Americas. Some of the outfits included: cowboys/ cowgirls, native Americans, ranch girls, cheerleaders, Elvis Presley, Bill Gates, Military people, day of the dead outfits, Brazilian footballer, hill-billies, SWAT, Statue of Liberty, Mini-mouse and Jake Paul and other You-tubers.  We started by learning about the Incas and their repeating print art work. We had a go at this ourselves using special cartridge paper. After break, we had a look at the Native American's totem poles. We learnt about why they made them and then made a section of a totem pole ourselves. We hope to make some class totem poles from our work.
