Burton Green Academy Newsletter 19th October 2022
It was so lovely to see so many of you at parent consultations this week finding out about how your child/children are doing at school. I always think what a special time it is to share with your child their learning and see how far they have come. This year was even more special as we were able to welcome you back ‘in person’.
We have had such a busy half term and I’ve been so proud of how the children have matured already this term. Our new children in Maple class have settled in so well and it is fantastic to see them going about their learning within the classroom.
We have our Harvest Assembly on Friday when we will get to say ‘Thank you’ for all of the gifts we have been given. We also have a collection of food which we will distribute to Kenilworth Food Bank.
I look forward to seeing you at our Harvest Assembly and I hope you have a lovely half term.
This week in Maple Class we have been learning all about the festival of Diwali. We created our own rangoli and mehndi patterns. We have also been learning about how Harvest is celebrated in the UK and have been busy practising our song for our Harvest Festival on Friday!
This week Cedar class have started our topic on The Great Fire of London. We have been learning about fire safety in the past and what it looks like nowadays. In addition, we have finalised our harvest festival ideas and can’t wait to show you this Friday.
In Damson class this week, we have been doubling and halving numbers in Maths. Whilst in Literacy, we have been writing our final pieces for Fables and Information Text.
We have also been making Stone Age Art, using Cave Art as our inspiration.
In Oak Class this week we have been revising subtraction strategies in Maths, creating conditional sentences in English and evaluating the Laying of Stones Assembly in RE. We have learnt a country dance ready for the harvest assembly on Friday and are currently selecting parts for the Christmas production! A busy week we are all looking forwards to half term.
