Burton Green Academy Newsletter 14th July 2021
It was certainly a quieter Monday morning as the children came into school. In school we have used the experience to talk about perseverance within out assemblies and talk about the goals we have in life. Whilst not the result we wanted it was a good opportunity to help children explain that we can be proud and disappointed at the same time.
Coming to the end of this ‘strange year’ has been a good time to celebrate the amazing things that the children have achieved. Our children have worked so hard in both their ‘in person’ and ‘remote’ learning and it is important to celebrate this as we prepare for them moving to their new year group or even their school.
You will receive a class photo later in the week and I would like to thank Miss Lucking for kindly taking all of these photos. Due to Covid we were not able to book an external photographer so we are grateful for Miss Lucking in creating these memories for each child.
I look forward to celebrating with you at the end of the week when we once again ‘virtually’ reach for the stars!
We had a very exciting start to the week as we had a visit from some Police Officers! They told us all about what police do and we even got to try on some uniform and look around the police van! It was brilliant! We are also building our own lighthouses in our topic work this week.
Thank you all for the kind donations of toilet roll and yoghurt pots to support our making of the African Rainmakers. The children have really enjoyed this topic and looking at African patterns and applying these to our designs. Hopefully you will enjoy the children practicing at home with their new instruments.
In Damson Class this week we are enjoying building Maze and Splat Games on Scratch in ICT. We are also going to be building an Ancient Egyptian Shadnuf in Design Technology this week too.
We have had an extremely busy week, we have been preparing memory books, cooking healthy snacks which we have shared, we have filmed our end of year play as well as completing our enterprise project – we raised £181 profit and a fabulous effort was made by everyone.
