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 another week filled with Vikings!
 
In PSHE we have been learning to work together cooperatively with others. On Monday we designed a Viking village, deciding together what buildings were needed and where we would put things. 
Whilst half the class were at Forest School on Wednesday, the other half held a Viking 'Thing'. This is the system the Vikings had for making laws and decisions on justice. It was a meeting where everyone's views were listened to fairly, presided over by a 'law-speaker'.
The children voted for who the law-speaker should be and Jago was successful.
The question: 
What should happen to someone who had been stealing food?
Finally, on Friday we had our Viking Day. The children looked amazing in their costumes. Well done to all the parents for  the effort that had been put into this.
 
We spent the day making Viking shields...
...and making Viking oatcakes.
 
I have attached the recipe below for anyone who would like to make them at home (although Mrs Jones' secret ingredient - cinnamon - isn't mentioned!) Try adding some jam or fruit as a topping to give them some more flavour.
