Burton Green Academy Newsletter 15th June 2022
It is so lovely to have our year 6 children back in school with lovely beaming smiles after their week of adventure.
A huge thank you to Miss V and Mrs T who supported the children to try everything and have a wonderful time.
I was so pleased to hear of the achievements of Molly in Oak and Mila in Cedar. They did fantastically at the athletics yesterday and Mila achieved a super impressive 4th out of the whole of central Warwickshire and Molly achieved a fantastic second out of the whole of Warwickshire. What an amazing achievement!
I have been delighted today in seeing some of our new children joining us in Maple class this morning. It is lovely seeing the existing children in Maple setting such fantastic examples of behaviour and showing the new children the routines and what they can play with.
Sorry that I needed to cancel Celebration Assembly last Friday. It now means we have even more to celebrate this Friday, when we once again ‘Reach for the Stars’.
We really enjoyed welcoming some of the new Reception children into Maple Class for a visit and were fantastic role models! We also have had an exciting visit from some ducklings that are only 1 week old and were able to hold them and name them. We have been learning to write descriptions of some of our favourite minibeasts.
This week Cedar class have been learning to create digital artwork in the style of the artists we have looked at this term. In addition, we are reading the Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch in our seaside topic and discussing making sandwiches for Mr Grinnling. Lastly, the children are very much enjoying and engaging with our literacy topic, Imaginary Fred. This is a book by the wonderful author Oliver Jeffers.
This week Damson Class have been putting the final touches onto their pots by decorating their Grecian Pots with traditional Greek patterns.
In Maths, we are using short division and also using mental strategies to multiply.
This week we have been compiling a memory book of our time on the residential visit with photographs and diary style entries. We have also been finalising our enterprise project plans ready for the Summer Fayre. We are also preparing for transition visits later this term.
