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.

This week the children have been learning about time. We started by reading the story 'The Bad Tempered Ladybird' and talked about the times on the clock as we read. All the children had their own clock and were able to show all the o clock times confidently. We put various clocks in order and discussed what we do at different times of the day. Some children also learnt to tell the time to half past the hour. We also thought about what we could do in 2 minutes. The children counted how many jumps they could do or how many times they could write their names. 
 
This week we have also asked the children to carry out a piece of writing independently in their books. All children can now write at least one sentence independently, and many children can write a number of sentences which is fantastic. Some of the more able children wrote the beginning of a story based on Goldilocks and her future adventures after she met the bears. The children used great openers and thought about the language and structure of the story. 
 
The children have also been busy creating beach scenes with collage and used sand for the beach. 
 
For PE the children went over the road to use the field and had a wonderful time with all the PE equipment. 
 
Many of the children played in the mud kitchen making repeating patterns with sticks, stones, leaves and flowers. 
 
We look forward to our farm trip next week!
