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 4th May 2018

This week the children have learnt our new class story 'The Little Red Hen.' We have put some actions to the story to help us remember it. The children wrote some sentences to describe the characters. I was amazed at the progress that all the children have made - nearly all children can now write at least one sentence. Many children were writing a number of sentences with a capital letter, a full stop and using some interesting describing words. 
In Maths this week we have been learning about shapes. We have been working hard on how to describe shapes and explain to each other what we know. We went on a shape hunt, spotting both 2d and 3d shapes around the school. We then put this information into a bar chart and discussed our findings. Later in the week we worked in groups to sort shapes into Venn diagrams and had to problem solve what criteria we wanted to use to sort them. 
In PE this week our Summer Games coach taught us how to throw and catch. We then played a team game to throw the balls into the hoops. We had to keep score to find the winning team. We used a range of small and large balls and tried some different throwing techniques. 
We made our own musical instruments and next week we will be using them to sing a song about the Little Red Hen. 
On May Day the children danced around our Maypole outside. They had great fun getting in a tangle!
This afternoon we had a visit from the RNLI to talk to us about beach safety. We learnt about the lifeguards, what they wear and what they do. We learnt about the flags and the dangers that are in the water.
