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.

English:

English this term we have been learning about a story called night terrors in Cairo. We have written our own version and a newspaper version of this story. To improve our writing, we planned it and boxed up the text for better vocabulary.  In our grammar we have been learning about model verbs, prepositions and semi-colons.  To help us remember, we have watched  videos on which include songs.

 

Maths:

For maths we have been learning about fractions, decimals and rounding.

 

 

Sports week:

Some people came into our school to teach us about how to be healthy and showed us some sporting games including archery, football, climbing and golf. For archery we split into groups and stood on a cone. We had bow and arrows which we had to try to hit the targets with.  Our groups had a few practice round and then we had a competition between all of the groups. Also in sports week we played football and handball with the our teachers (the Y6 teachers).  Another thing we did was have a vast climbing wall in the playing field. We split into 2 groups: 1 went climbing and the ones stayed in and carried on with Literacy: then we switched round halfway through. Our last sporty thing in sporting week is that we played tri-golf.
