Burton Green Academy Newsletter 12th February 2020
It was so lovely to see so many of you at parent consultations this week. The enthusiasm of the children in sharing their work with yourselves is wonderful to see. Working in partnership is so important when working in education and seeing this in action at parent consultations is fantastic.
As winter finally appears to be making an appearance please make sure your child has a nice warm coat for play times as we endeavour to get the children out not matter what the weather. If the weather does include significant snow then you will be notified using the school texting service and notification through the Warwickshire system which notifies through their own texting service and the local radio.
I hope you all have a fantastic half term and I look forward to seeing everybody after a restful half term.
Class Highlights of the Week:
We’ve had a very exciting week so far! We had a dinosaur break in on Monday and had to be detectives to look for clues. We have used this to inspire our story writing! We have also had a D&T day and have been constructing some fantastic dinosaurs.
The Children have enjoyed layering tissue paper to create volcano art in the style of Margaret Godfrey. I am also very proud of our Jack and the Beanstalk stories.
This week we have been practising different oil pastel techniques in art. In maths, we have been using column methods to multiply some rather large numbers and 'chunking' to divide.
We have been revising features of newspapers in Literacy, in topic work we have learned rules to a new game Pok-a-Tok played by the Ancient Maya. We are all looking forward to the half term holidays, including Miss V.
