Burton Green Academy Newsletter 19th June 2019
Another week has flown by with lots of exciting things happening across the school. Maple class have been busily working on their class assembly and the excitement is huge as they prepare to ‘wow’ you all with their confident performances. In Cedar class we have seen the children continue to work hard (as well as prepare a few amazing songs for their assembly!). I know they enjoyed a fantastic ‘writing day’ yesterday when they got a chance to extend their stories into epic novels. All of this is being interwoven with our work on Country Dancing for next week’s Kenilworth festival at the Castle and Athletics work. It was so lovely to see the children competing last night (in the slightly damp conditions) and giving it their all in both throwing and long jump. Well done all of those who took part, some amazing achievements.
It’s not just the children who are busy as the PTFA hosted a wine and cheese evening last Friday. This was a fantastic event with a really special atmosphere. They raised an impressive £260 which will help fund a restock of the school library and thanks need to go to the PTFA who organised and Mr Abbott (Ben’s dad in year 6) for kindly donating the wine to make the evening possible.
Class Highlights of the Week:
We had a great morning on Tuesday as our friends from All Saints came to work with us. Reception completed Forest School activities together and Year one had a Multi-Sports morning - it was good fun! We are very busy practising our assembly too.
The children have really enjoyed the beginning of our new topic where we are comparing two countries and continents. We have been studying the culture and location of South Africa and comparing it to the UK.
This week we have been learning all about the process of mummification and writing sequences instructions in topic. In literacy, we have been writing persuasive arguments to save Polar bears.
We enjoyed organising and supervising the Year one multi-skills morning. Cooking our healthy snacks and sharing them was good fun. Now we are starting rehearsals for our end of year show.
