Burton Green Academy Newsletter 23rd June 2021
It has been another busy week at school with the children enjoying their learning. It has been exciting hearing about year 6 preparing for their enterprise project and how they are having to be even more creative this year.
You will have seen an updated letter with changes that we have had to make due to Covid restrictions. We are very grateful for all of the support you have offered the us during these tricky times and know it can be frustrating at times when we have needed to send children home or ask you to get them tested. We are given clear guidance by Warwickshire Public Health and are obliged to follow this guidance, in order to keep everybody safe.
I look forward to our virtual celebration of the children’s achievements on Friday.
This week we are being super authors and have been writing our own pirate adventure story! In maths, we have been exploring telling the time and have focussed on o’clock and half past times. Please help us explore this more at home too!
This week we have enjoyed designing our African landscapes in art. We have learnt about silhouettes and how effective this is in artwork. We have discussed and evaluated various examples of African artwork which the children have really enjoyed.
This week in Damson Class we have been multiplying in Maths and planning our arguments for persuasive writing in Literacy. We also got to watch an online performance by Warwickshire County Council on the subject of Air Quality. It was a great show and as always, the children had lots of great ideas on how we could cut down air pollution in preparation for ‘Cleaner Air Day’ on 21st June.
This week we have been making plans to launch our enterprise initiative – we will be allowing pre orders of our initiatives in the next few days more information will follow later this week. We have also begun to work on our end of year performance which will be filmed - it is a very busy time in year 6.
