Burton Green Academy Newsletter 26th May 2021
Today has been a lovely week with the weather slowly improving and the children enjoying their learning. I once again had the pleasure of talking to the children about their learning this week and it was lovely to hear how all of the children value their topic work, the different types of writing (they were proud of their ‘really long’ pieces!) and they explained how they enjoy showing their mathematical learning through their mastery work. Maple class have had an exciting day planting their plants and can’t wait to see them grow!
I can’t believe that we have almost got to the end of half term! Enjoy the half term break and remember no school on Friday!
This week we are learning all about mini-beasts using non-fiction texts and are creating some super pieces of butterfly artwork! We are revisiting addition strategies and number bonds in maths and are going to be busy planting in our allotment during Wellie Wednesday!
This week we have been recording our videos with our Galapagos island puppet theatres. We have written a script which has helped the children stay focused. The children have all worked extremely hard this term and are in much need of a well-deserved break. Happy half term!
This week in Damson Class we have been hard at work, trying to solve written maths problems. This has kept the children (and staff) on their toes! In literacy we have been writing in the style of an author and we have enjoyed painting Egyptian artefacts in Topic too.
We have been continuing with our class text – Kensuke’s Kingdom – empathising with the characters situations. In numeracy we have been calculating fractions of amounts and revising long division. We have been discussing aspects of secondary school transition to help us problem solve situations which may arise.
