Burton Green Academy Newsletter 16th September 2020
I can’t believe that we are already on the second full week. The time is flying by as we continue to enjoy having the children back in school.
As a quick reminder could I ask that you send your child in with a coat every day and ensure their water bottle is freshly filled each morning.
We apologise that we are needing to restrict parents access to school. If there is an issue that you want to discuss with your child’s class teacher, please contact the office and they will relay this.
If we can ask that you continue to support us by reading with your child each evening and talk through the books they are reading.
We have been advised that if your child has cold symptoms (runny nose, sneezing, no temperature and no cough) as opposed to the temperature and persistent cough, that you can still send your child into school. If however you are unsure about the symptoms your child is presenting I would always prefer you go with a precautious approach. If the school takes your child’s temperature and it is above 38 or they have a persistent cough reported by staff within school, we will request you get a test. As a school we are committed to keeping everybody safe and ensuring the school remains open.
If you are ever unsure on whether what to do I would recommend the NHS website https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 where you can follow their advice.
Please always inform us of why your child is absent as this allows us to keep the community as safe as we can.
I will be emailing the link to our Celebration assembly on Friday where you will be able to watch it for one week.
Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the autumn weather!
This week Reception are joining us full time and are really enjoying sharing their ‘chatterboxes’. It also means we are getting to know each other really well! In Literacy, we are exploring stories about ‘Mog the Forgetful Cat’ and are thinking about what our perfect pet would be.
This week the children have begun learning about the life of Mary Seacole and her impact on the nursing world. Furthermore, the children have done brilliantly both working with Place Value (Y2) and Adding and Subtracting near multiples of 10 (Y3)
This week we have been listening to music inspired by space and creating music from images. Also, in our topic work we have begun studying the Stone Age and have placed some key events on timelines.
Oak have had a good week overall. Everyone created super still life sketches focusing on shading and proportion. We have learned how and why World War II began and now understand that politicians and world leaders do not always tell the truth – Adolf Hitler signed The Munich Agreement but did not stick with his promise.
