Burton Green Academy Newsletter 7th July 2021
It has been an enjoyable week with the preparation in Oak reaching ‘fever pitch’ as they not only prepare for their film, but also ensure they are ready to provide the enterprise orders. I have been very lucky to also observe some of the lovely writing that has been going on in maple class as the children have put so much effort into their writing.
In our assemblies we have been once again thinking about Respect. This week we have been thinking about respecting those who have different opinions to ourselves and also those who do so much. This topic has been lovely to think about and I would encourage the children to think about friendships in and out of school and that whilst people might have different opinions, they can still be a good friend.
There is no celebration assembly this week as we will be spending this time taking class photographs. I hope you have a wonderful weekend, when it finally arrives.
This week in Maple Class we are writing postcards and letters. We are thinking about when we might send them and are also writing them from characters in the ‘Sea Tiger’ story. In Maths we are revisiting number bonds up to 10 and 20 and are also practising counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.
This week the children will be researching the artist, Rousseau and in particular Animals in the jungle. This is an opportunity for the children to experiment with pastels and create an authentic scene. In addition, we will discuss tone and the relevance of this in art.
This week in Damson class we have been writing our own poems. We have had to dig deep to find our inner poet – it turns out we have quite a few in Damson Class! We have also been working on Scratch in ICT to develop a maze game.
This week we have been extremely busy with preparing our enterprise goods. The items ordered will be given out to classes to bring home at the end of Thursday.
We have also been getting ready to film our end of school production on Friday.
