Burton Green Academy Newsletter 12th June 2019
We have had a busy week with lots happening. I had the opportunity to see our Oak class busily working on their enterprise initiatives. It certainly looks like we are going to have some fantastic stalls at our Summer Fayre! You will also notice that there is a flyer for our ‘Busking Stop’ that will be open at the Summer Fayre. A great opportunity to show your talent (whatever your age!)
We have been notified that there is likely to be some disruption with the works that are planned by HS2. Please keep an eye out for any messages regarding this as unfortunately it does tend to cause chaos at pick up and drop off times.
On Friday we have the Cheese and Wine evening to look forward to (grab a ticket if you haven’t got one already!) and of course our usual Friday morning celebration of the fantastic achievements of the children within the school. I look forward to seeing you there.
Class Highlights of the Week:
We have been enjoying creating our pirate names this week and have been making pirate passports! We are also very busy rehearsing our assembly.
Happy Father’s day to all. We have enjoyed designing and creating some interesting cards which will help celebrate this special day.
We have been learning about Jean-François Champollion the famous French scholar who used the Rosetta stone to decode hieroglyphs. We have also had a go at producing our cartouches. In literacy, we have been considering arguments both for and against keeping animals in zoos in preparation for some persuasive writing.
We have been busy with, Country Dancing, Lego Mind Storms in ICT and studying evolution in science as well as getting ready for cookery this Thursday – creating healthy snacks.
