Burton Green Academy Newsletter 15th September 2021
It was so lovely to welcome the children back last week and to see how well they settled into their new routines and in many cases new classrooms.
Seeing our new children join us in Maple class put a huge smile on my face as they came in and made new friends and developed new skills.
I have been impressed with our new year 6 children and the way in which they have already risen to the challenges of being ‘top of the school’. I’m sure they will continue to impress us all and make Miss V proud.
On Friday we will be celebrating the achievements of the children in the hall for our celebration assembly and we will be endeavouring to record this for you to enjoy at home.
I can’t wait to celebrate with the children this week and ‘Reach for the Stars’.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend when it finally arrives!
We have really enjoyed welcoming the new reception children into our class! They have been superstars and the Year 1 children have been fantastic at helping them. We are very proud of you all! This week we have been thinking about superheroes and will be exploring some stories with superheroes over the next few weeks
This week the class have really enjoyed starting their castle topic. We have started by introducing Motte and Bailey castles with the thought of moving forward in time eventually to William the Conqueror. The children have really tried their best today and we’re very proud of them.
This week in Damson Class aside from getting to grips with our new routines we have been learning about Recounts in Literacy, Column Addition in Numeracy and we have also started our new topic of the ‘Victorians’.
This week we have been rounding decimals and converting them to fractions successfully. In literacy we have been considering what it is like to be a refugee – we have compared the differences of how we would be treated if we were a refugee or visitor. We have had a busy but productive week overall.
