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 27th April

Congratulations to our dojo winners Millie Forrest and Stacey-Lee Davis.

 

This week the children have been learning about the tale of King Midas.  They made masks and thought about how it would feel if everything they touched turned to gold.

 

On Tuesday 24th April Crantock dressed up as Ancient Egyptians.  We had a range of pharaohs, kings, queens, Cleopatra, sphynx’s, mummies, slaves and dancers!  Everyone looked fantastic and shared their interesting fact about the Egyptians.

 

Throughout the day the children thought about what they would like to find out about the Egyptians.  They learnt about Egyptian society, pharaohs, gods and goddesses.  Their favourite fact was that the Egyptian’s worshipped cats!

 

In their PE they are having a specialist coach called Vicky coaching them tennis.  They began by learning how to control the ball, improving their hand eye coordination and built up to playing mini rallies bouncing the ball to one another.  They all really enjoyed the lesson. 

 

Reading diaries have been introduced this term.  Please record in their diary when you hear them read or if you read to them.  It is so important that the children are reading a range of different texts from recipes, to newspapers, poetry to instructions.  Log it in their diary so we can see all the different types of reading they are doing.  Thanks for your help with this!  

 

Have a great weekend!
