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.

It seems unbelievable that it is Friday again – this week has just flown by. We have been busy learning about the parts of a flower in Science and continued to explore the world of the Ancient Greeks in our topic lesson. In Art we have been looking at Red and Black Figure Vases and begun to plan our own design. The weather was ideal for Rounders on Wednesday and Thursday this week and we have begun a class competition – it is currently one game all. We also have a special visitor this week - PC Linton came to talk to all of Year 5 about the very important subject of Bullying. He reminded the children that they are responsible for their actions and they must consider others and think carefully before they act. A reminder that next Friday is our Ancient Greek Topic day - the children just need to bring themselves to school – nothing else is required for our day on Ancient Greece. Have a good weekend.
