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.

Congratulations to our award winners for their hard work this week, particularly in maths.
 
We have had an amazing week, designing our own applique tin mine landscapes to sew next week and completing an experiment looking at how different liquids freeze!
We chose a wide range of liquids including, milk, tomato soup, lemonade, custard, washing up liquid and vegetable oil to try and freeze. Not all the liquids froze,  which was really interesting to see. We will check how frozen our liquids are again next week. 
 
During our PE lessons this week we worked on our tag rugby and basketball skills. Including practicing successful chest passes in basketball and playing tag games in tag rugby. 
 
Literacy has been exciting, finishing our balanced argument on whether a tin mine should be build in our school field and editing our work with our partner. I was very impressed with how well they all worked together during this and made suggestions to their partner about their work in a lovely, kind way. Our words of the week that we have been working on in our writing were: busy, business, build, guide and guard. Next week our words of the week will be: though, thought, through, enough and although. 
 
Don't forget to practice your 5 times tables for next week. We will also continue to look at the formal column method for addition and subtraction next week. 
 
I look forward to seeing your finished applique landscape next week!
