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.

It has been a busy week this week!
 
On Monday, it was St Piran's Day. We all dressed in either black and white or black and gold. In Lusty Glaze class, we started off very energetically. In our PE slot we learnt how to do the Floral Dance. The children worked very sensibly and performed  well.
After learning the Floral Dance, we found out about the story of St Piran, acting out the story. Once we were really familiar with the story, we wrote a news report about it
In literacy this week, we have continued our writing unit based on battle scenes. 
 
We watched a clip of gladiators walking out into the arena before a battle and then used this as inspiration for our independent writing, thinking about describing using our senses and also what the characters were feeling.
 
In art, we also stuck to our battle theme, painting orcs and warriors to decorate a display of our writing about the battle of Helm's Deep (from Lord of the Rings).
Our week finished off with the rescheduled World Book Day. The children looked very cosy in their pyjamas. Many had bought books in to swap (see below) and I would like to thank the children and parents for their generosity in helping with this event. 
 
The afternoon ended with many parents coming in and sharing stories with their children, whilst drinking hot chocolate. Thanks again to everyone for your support and patience over the long hot chocolate queue.
 
It was a great day and lovely to see books and stories being shared.
