Burton Green Academy Newsletter 30th June 2021
It has been another busy week with lots of things happening. I have seen some of the fantastic persuasive writing from Cedar class this week and I have been ‘blown away’ by the quality of their work, well done Cedar. Oak class are busy with their end of term preparations and I am intrigued by the twists and turns of the plot they have written for their film. Can’t wait to see what happens! They are now waiting to see how the orders come in for their enterprise project. If you haven’t got your order in yet, get them in as soon as you can!
Thank you for your patience with following the Covid guidance and keeping your children off when they are unwell. We recognise that this can be very frustrating, but at the moment we are following public health’s guidance which states this what we need to do.
I hope you have a great rest of the week and I look forward to celebrating with you during our virtual celebration assembly at the end of the week.
This week in Maple Class we have started our new book: Sea Tiger, and will be going on adventures under the sea! We are also exploring number bonds in maths and will be building shelters in Science.
This week in Cedar class we have been researching African patterns, in the hope of making ‘rain-makers’. The children have created some lovely designs which they hope to apply to their instrument. In addition, we have been revising the formal calculation methods for Year 3 in maths and developing our place value knowledge in year 2.
This week in Damson Class we are working on multiplication and division strategies in Maths and we have a new topic, ‘Poetry by Heart’, in Literacy. We have all really enjoyed watching the author Michael Rosen perform his poetry and will no doubt, use his devices when reciting our own!
We have had a very busy week preparing our enterprise project and writing our end of year production. Everyone is getting more excited about their planned secondary school moves. We have been learning about the basics of finances in numeracy/PHSE – debt, credit, mortgages, loans and the subject of Needs Vs Wants allowed us to have very interesting discussions.
