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.

And that was another fantastic week in Porthpean Class!
 
Wow, what a week, and what alot of brilliant learning that I have seen from the children!
During our literacy, we have been changing the story of Fantastic Mr Fox into our own version and I am pleased to say that I have enjoyed reading lot of very creative stories about new and interesting characters! Keep the ideas flowing, they are great!
 
For RE we have been learing about Hinduism, and the stories about their many Gods which the class have found fascintaing. There have been some super illustrations of the elephant headed God -Ganesh and a lot of independent learning done on the subject too! 
 
Our topic of Mining has also managed to captivate during history and also Art. Look out for some beautiful watercolour paintings of Cornish tin mines which will soon be on display.
 
Next week we have visitors from Levant Tin mine who will be coming in to see us. Then it is off on our trip to the mine on Wednesday. Another action packed time ahead!
 
Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
