Burton Green Academy Newsletter 16th November 2022
Last week finished with our remembrance assembly on Friday. We enjoyed an opportunity to talk about the act of remembrance and what it means to us all.
I was very impressed with how the children marked the two minutes silence. As a school it has also been lovely seeing our year 6 children selling the Poppies around school every day and setting such a lovely example to the younger children.
This week we have been thinking about anti-bullying week and the children have been completing work to help them think about what it feels like to be bullied and how we can stop this together.
A reminder that it is ‘Children in Need’ on Friday, so we look forward to seeing the children in a mixture of sporting clothes and parents are able to donate to Children in Need via our BGA Just Giving page!
They will also get an opportunity to take part in a danceathon led by the fantastic Mrs T!
This week is Anti-Bullying Week and we have been exploring this year’s theme – Reach out! We have been thinking about who we can talk to if we are feeling worried or upset and have been celebrating that we are all unique and special. We have also been discussing how we can show kindness to others and how we can be a good friend.
This week Cedar class have been writing letters about animals that have been stuck in all sorts of places. We will further look forward to our Great Fire of London topic by researching all about Tudor buildings.
We have been looking at how we can be kind and ‘reach-out’ to people who are feeling sad for anti-bullying week. The children have been demonstrating this kindness beautifully.
Damson Class made an exciting start to their week by enjoying a Stone Age Day. This was led by a member of Warwickshire Heritage and Culture team. The children were led through a computer game scenario, that they could only escape, by developing their skills and knowledge of the three different time periods within the Stone Age. During the day, the children were actively involved in sorting and handling of many Stone Age replica artefacts and learnt lots about Stone Age society and life. It was a great day that brought learning to life! In addition to this, we have also been covering the issue of Bullying during Anti-Bullying week too.
In Oak Class we spent time working on anti-bullying strategies under the theme of Reach Out. We have also covered the ideas behind Cop 27 and what we can personally do to reduce our carbon footprints. In maths we have started our fractions work and in topic work we now understand the range of different shelters that were used for protection in World War II.
