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 2nd February

We have had a fantastic week this week cooking our own Gingerbread men. The children mixed all the ingredients, rolled out the dough and then decorated them once they were cool. The best part was eating them!
 
In maths this week the children have been learning about adding and taking away. We have used various resources to help us find the answer and learnt how to record this as a number story. We have also used a number line to count on and back to find the answer. We thought about holding a number in our head and counted on to find the answer. This week we gave the children their first maths books!They were very excited and felt very grown up. We thought about ordering numbers and number formation. They were fantastic at writing a digit in each square. We have sent home the words to songs we have been singing to help us remember how to form each number. 
 
The children had a great time for number day. We used their numbers as part of our maths lesson. We looked at the different numbers and used them for addition. 
 
Next week is our foundation stage assembly. We will perform our gingerbread man story for the whole school to see. We have been busy practising and the children are very excited. 
 
Have a good weekend!
