Burton Green Academy Newsletter 18th December 2019
This week has been a really busy week in school with Christmas lunch, parties and the Panto! It is such a special time within school where we get to see the children enjoying the marvel of Christmas and their building excitement. Last week we got a chance to appreciate the children’s amazing Christmas performances which wowed and amazed us on Friday evening. I was so proud of the children and I’m sure as parents you were bursting with pride as they sang, performed and danced through the show. Tomorrow afternoon it would be lovely if you could join us for the Carol concert where we will once again be able to appreciate the fantastic singing of the children and the lovely nativity scene from reception class children.
Many thanks for your generosity of the gifts and cards that have been given to all of the staff. It is greatly appreciated. If I don’t get a chance to see you beforehand I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas and enjoy the time with your families. If you are however available on Friday morning we will be having the last celebration assembly of the term. Don’t forget your Christmas jumpers! (just to clarify Christmas jumpers with usual school uniform bottoms).
Class Highlights of the Week:
This week we have been busy practising our carol service and Reception have been super at acting out the story. We have also been thinking about the story of the First Christmas and what we are thankful for at Christmas time! We wish you all a Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas! This week the children have enjoyed the parties with Maple class and showed that they were excellent role models for the younger members of the school.
We have been busy developing our problem solving skills in mathematics, in particular being able to reason. Also, Year 4 have been practising their narration of the nativity story ready for Thursday.
We have been busy writing narrative poetry in the style of Roald Dahls Revolting Rhymes. In numeracy we have been calculating using division. We all enjoyed creating our model world war 2 gardens (including shelters). We have all worked hard this term and are looking forward to a family centred Christmas break.
