Burton Green Academy Newsletter 16th February 2022
It has been a very busy half term with lots going on and a real buzz of excitement within school.
It was lovely to have so many of you coming to our parent consultations to find out about the great progress your children have made over this term. It is a real team effort and I know the staff really appreciate the time to share your child’s achievements.
As we finish the first half of the year I would once again like to thank all of you for your tremendous support through another difficult year. Working together allows us to offer the very best education for all of the children within the school. I am looking forward to the increasing opportunities when we will be able to get together in person.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our amazing staff, who have gone constantly above and beyond, to ensure that the children have consistency of education and a real feeling of fun as they enter school each day. We are lucky to have such a fantastic team.
I would like to wish you all a restful and enjoyable half term (when it comes) where I hope you will enjoy quality time together as families.
This week we have been thinking all about how to be kind to others as it is ‘Kindness Week’. We have been thinking about what makes a good friend and are trying hard to make sure we treat others how we like to be treated. We also had a very exciting D&T Day where we made our own dinosaurs out of junk modelling materials. We created some super dinosaurs and even invited Year 6 in to look at them. We hope you have a lovely half term!
The children have worked brilliantly this term and are certainly ready for the break. We have recently finished our literacy unit about ANGER! The children have found this really useful with managing their own thoughts and feelings.
An exciting time in Damson Class this week as we approach half term. The children are making their Rainforest Diorama’s in Topic, having an ICT Day and a fun swimming session too. They have worked hard this term and deserve a well-earned break!
In Oak Class this week we have watched a Nancy Drew detective program, made appropriate notes and written a film review. In numeracy we have been focussed on long division – much to everyone’s joy!
We have discussed and explored suggested Acts of Kindness as a class – as they all recognise how they could make a difference at home hopefully they are all helping out more.
