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 3rd November

This week we have been learning about the Gunpowder Plot and the reason that we have Firework Night on the 5th November. The children have been busy creating art work on the computer and using pastels on black paper. We used lots of exciting effects and bright colours.
We have been using role play to act out the Gunpowder Plot story. We worked in groups to pretend to be King James, Guy Fawkes and the guards.  We performed the story to each other and talked about what the characters would say in freeze frames. We particularly like the gruesome bits at the end!
We have started practising for our Christmas Show this week...I know it seems early to start at the end of October but we only have 5 weeks to get ready!
The children have been really excited to get to know their songs, dances and the roles that they will have. Our show is called 'Gold, Frankincense and Mirth!' It is a children's comedy about the journey of the three wise men.
