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 29th September 2017

This week in our literacy lessons, we have been writing our own version of the Fantastic Mr Fox story. We have been writing separate paragraphs every day throughout the week. We have been trying to include exciting verbs, adverbs, adjectives, where adverbial phrases; as well as making sure we use our capital letters and full stops correctly. Some of us are starting to use commas too!
In maths we have been looking at addition and subtraction, using the formal column methods, as well as looking at different diagrams, such as bead sticks, place value counters and number lines.
In our topic lessons this week we have been finding out about Cornish tin mines in preparation for our visit to Geevor next Wednesday.
