Burton Green Academy Newsletter 11th March 2020
We have had a busy week with every class busy enjoying their learning and finding out some amazing facts. You will notice as you come into school our new display board, which shows some of opportunities the children have within our school. The board is entitled ‘Life in all its Fullness’ and demonstrates the fullness of life we want to encourage within all of our children.
Tomorrow we are looking forward to a very busy day, as the children enjoy dressing up for Sports Relief, enjoying a fun obstacle activity (along with a biscuit) and also taking part in our environmental learning day. During the environmental day the children will have opportunities to develop their awareness of recycling, have practical opportunities to work on our growing beds and also make things that will encourage recycling and reduction in waste.
A quick reminder that school will be closed on Friday, due to staff training. I hope you all have a lovely weekend when it arrives.
Class Highlights of the Week:
This week in Maple class we have been learning about the events of Palm Sunday in RE and are exploring different materials in Science. We are also looking forward to Environmental day on Thursday and will be exploring different ways we can recycle to help our planet.
This week the children have really enjoyed reading the book 'Just a Dream' and relating this to the environment. We have undertaken some interesting activities with the goal of being more conscious about the environment.
This week we have been learning how to use both reported and direct speech in literacy. In maths, we have been measuring and calculating perimeter and comparing imperial and metric measures. Also, we have continued to learn new skills in Publisher to create our photo stories.
We have been working on a few mothers day surprises. In numeracy we have been calculating averages and this week we have also been revisiting the easter story as well as considering who was responsible for Jesus’ death.
