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.

Another short week thanks to the snow but another busy one!
 
The children were very excited about another opportunity to play in the snow. 
 
We have been looking at our science experiment and observing the differences in growth with our cress seeds. The children were pleased to see their predictions were correct and the seeds with sun and water are growing well. 
 
In maths this week we have been learning about money. We learnt how to add two prices together to work out the cost of our shopping and how to record this as a number story. We then thought about which coins we could use to pay for this. We talked about the value of each coin. The children also thought about what happens with regards to change and how to record this as a subtraction number story. 
 
We learnt the Easter story this week and the children remembered the details well. They cut pictures of the story and put them in the correct order. They then retold the Easter story using the pictures to help them. 
 
We had a very exciting PE lesson as we danced in our Chinese Dragons that we made a few weeks back for Chinese New Year. The children took turns to dance, watch and play percussion instruments. We even walked up and down the school causing Chaos! 
 
Thank you to all those adults who came to watch our Gingerbread Man story performance. It was lovely to see so many of you there. We only managed to film a short part as we ran out of space on the Ipad. Good old technology!
