Littlegreen Academy

Butser Class

Class Teacher: Greg Tognarelli

Welcome to Butser Class one of our Key Stage 4 classes here at Littlegreen Academy.

Autumn 2022

Butser Class have really enjoyed their first couple of months in Year 11. Their weekly timetable sees them attend Littlegreen for the first three days of the week and then they attend Chichester College for the last two days of the week. This variety has given them lots of opportunities for out of the classroom learning and the chance to have a weekly tennis game on the courts at the college.

Maths has been a big focus this year and the pupils have really enjoyed the challenge of their new style workbooks.  Our two completed topics so far have been Congruence, Similarity and Enlargement (ratio and proportion, lengths, areas and volumes and scale factors) and Trigonometry (Using Sin, Cos and Tan values and applying Pythagoras Theorem).   

We have all really enjoyed reading as a group. The novel we have just finished is Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. It is about a boy who is involved in a plane crash in the Canadian wilderness and how he survives. Our next novel is A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness.

The pupils are working hard towards an ASDAN qualification in Personal Social Effectiveness.  Our two topics this term are Sport and Leisure and Independent Living. 

In Sport and Leisure, we have studied the sports activities of both pupils and staff at Littlegreen and have looked at the wide range of sport and leisure activities in our local area. The highlight of this was an interview with a swimming development officer who explained the opportunities available for under 5's, over 65's and wheelchair users.
