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.

We have been focusing on the Alma text which is about suspense writing. We created actions to retell the story and then as a class we retold it to Pentire. We then watched Pentire retell the story using their actions. Later on in the week, we learnt about the different language features which are included in suspense writing and within the Alma story. We have also started to record our persuasive speeches using the green screen. We hope to carry this on next week.
In numeracy, we have been working with fractions. We have looked at using the four operations with fractions, finding fractions of amounts and using BIDMAS with fractions.
This week we carried on with Tag-rugby. We played bull-dog using the tags and played some mini 3 Vs 2 games, where the 3s had to keep the ball away from the 2s.
