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

Great Western had a good half term break and have come back to school ready to learn.
 
Once again we have had an incredibly busy week!
 
We were delighted to meet so many parents over the week. We were able to let parents know how their children have settled into Year 3 and the progress they have made during the first half term, in addition to many other things. 
 
This week we have started out forest school sessions. The children thoroughly enjoyed these and came back with beaming faces. Miss Small has put a lot of work into planning exciting activities . . . look out for next week's blog which will hopefully have a few photos.
 
During Literacy we have been imagining we are personal trainers and have researched then written advice for our ficticious clients. In addition to researching food groups and nutrients we have also been learning the purpose or our writing and the audience we are writing for.
 
Mr Nash came in to teach us French on Thursday - we were brilliant at the french version of 'Simon Says'. Next week we will be moving onto counting to 10.
 
After a break of 3 weeks, Phillip was amazed with how much we had remembered about playing the violin - well done Great Western.
 
A fantastic week in Great Western, looking forward to the next one.
