We shall be learning about the celebration of Harvest and talking about feeling thankful for the food we have and ways in which we can help those who are not so fortunate.  YF  will take part in a Harvest Assembly later in the month (in school) whilst Y1 and Y2 will visit the Food Bank at the Methodist Chapel on the following afternoons:

In this respect if you would like to contribute a food item please could your child bring it with them to school on the day of their visit.  We would be grateful for donations of the following:  Packets, tinned goods, dried foods and items with a long shelf life that the Food Bank can distribute accordingly.

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.
