Burton Green Academy Newsletter 13th November 2019
This week started with our remembrance assembly on Monday. We enjoyed a very moving poem written by Savannah which set the scene perfectly and the whole school impressed me during our two minutes silence. As a school it has been lovely seeing our year 6 children selling the Poppies outside school every day and setting such a lovely example to the younger children.
Amidst our work for Remembrance, our choir have been busily preparing for our trip on Friday to Radio Coventry. I am so proud of what the children have achieved in only a week, we’re not quite perfect, but we’re definitely enthusiastic!
This weekend we have cross country at Priors Field where I’m sure it will once again be a ‘little muddy’. Good luck to all of the children taking part and many thanks to Miss V for attending.
A reminder that it is ‘Children in Need’ on Friday so we look forward to seeing the children in stripes, spots or teddy bear related clothing with a £1 donation.
Class Highlights of the Week:
We learnt all about the importance of Remembrance Day on Monday and made a special poppy wreath. This week we have also been creating the next adventure story for Baby Bear and have enjoyed planning what he will do next!
This week we have been adding and subtracting money in maths. In literacy the children have done brilliantly at using expanded noun phrases to describe Baba Yaga.
We have been writing instructions and explanations for our hot task in literacy this week, trying really hard to reach our targets and include the correct features. Also, we have been planning our own scone recipe for our D and T topic this term - yummy!
Oak class enjoyed a trip to Coventry Cathedral -exploring the World War II underground museum and both modern and ancient Cathedral grounds.
We have been working with negative numbers and fraction walls in maths and developing our understanding of rationing.
