Burton Green Academy Newsletter 9th February 2022
This week has been a hive of activity as we celebrated internet safety day this week. We took this as an opportunity to work with the children on their awareness of keeping themselves safe online.
We all recognise what a benefit the internet has offered so many of us through Covid times, but it is still important to remind the children of the potential risks.
On the 2nd March Mr Nailor and myself will be hosting a virtual internet safety session for parents to either watch live or watch the recording (times to come shortly). Within this session we will be highlighting the best ways to keep your child safe but also enjoy the opportunities of what the internet has to offer (now and in the future).
Next week will be a very special week as we mark ‘random acts of kindness’ week and we also get a chance to celebrate your child’s achievements within parent consultations.
I look forward to celebrating with you all on Friday when we once again ‘Reach for the Stars’
This week we have been learning about how to keep safe when using the internet as it was Internet Safety Day on Tuesday. We learnt a song from Smartie the Penguin to help us remember what to do if something pops up or if we’re not sure what to click on. It is also Mental Health Awareness Week so we have been learning about how to keep our minds healthy and have been thinking about how special each person is!
This week Cedar Class have been focusing on internet safety. Internet safety day was on Tuesday 8th February and we had a day of fun filled activities learning about respect and appropriate online use.
This week in Damson we have been writing our arguments on the subject of deforestation in Literacy and in Maths we have been continuing with multiplication methods. We have also been increasing our understanding on our Mental Health and Keeping Safe Online.
In Oak Class we have started our ‘Detective Unit’, reading and analysing a story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. We definitely have some budding detectives in class who were able to successfully piece together the clues to solve the crime. In our maths work this week we have been using reasoning skills to solve word problems. A busy week with a focus on children’s mental health and online safety too!
