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 25th May

We have been learning about colour mixing this week and have sponge painted a beach scene using blue and yellow paint. We had to mix the primary colours to get the green sea colour. The children enjoyed sticking real sand to their picture and adding the clouds and the sun. We are going to make a display in the classroom to include all our lovely beach photographs from the trip we went on last week.
We have been following up our Real Life Heroes work with some role play using the costumes and work packs left by the fire service. The children have saved an imaginary cat from a tree, attended a car crash and entered a burning building! 
They made their own Fire engine with the chairs from the classroom and used a radio to call out their instructions to the team. It was all very exciting!
Our final Forest School trip has been a very artistic adventure with the children making patterns and pictures with the natural things around them that they have collected from the environment. They used sticks, stones, leaves and flowers to decorate a pattern. Some worked in teams or pairs. They really enjoyed seeing their final designs but were sad that they couldn't keep them.
