Burton Green Academy Newsletter 9th June 2021
Welcome back after what I hope was a relaxing half term break. We now begin a very busy half term with lots going on for children and adults. There is so much planned I’m not sure how we are going to fit it in! We are still constantly reviewing the restrictions imposed on us due to Covid and this will continue to be reviewed to try and give us as ‘normal’ as possible end to this term.
We are looking forward to welcoming our new children into school starting from next week. This year we have a mix of virtual introductions, in person visits after school (in small groups) and then small groups visiting within the classroom setting (this will continue to be reviewed to ensure it is aligned with current risk assessments).
It has been an exciting return to this half term with the children enjoying some extra social and relationship education this week. I was lucky enough to watch Oak class enjoying their session talking about family webs and how they are all interconnected. I particularly liked seeing them in a rather stringy situation!
I look forward to celebrating with you again at our virtual celebration assembly on Friday!
We have started our new topic – Pirates! On Tuesday we had a break in and all of our treasure was stolen! We have been fantastic detectives to work out who it was so just ask us and we will reveal the culprit. We have also been finding out our own pirate names and have designed what we would look like as a pirate.
The children have been really respectful this week throughout their RSE learning. They have been contributing really purposefully to each and every discussion with really useful opinions. We have all learnt a lot about one another as well as what we each do and don't like, especially when it comes to playing kindly at breaktime.
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 are busy revising for our assessments in class. We have been covering aspects of numeracy and SPAG particularly in preparation for our assessments ahead of our moves to secondary school.
We have enjoyed this week’s relationship, friendships and well-being sessions which have helped us to recognise many positive aspects of or personalities and lives.
