Burton Green Academy Newsletter 21st September 2022


Dear Parents,
Whilst short, it has been another busy week with the children continuing to enjoy their learning in school.

Within our assemblies we have been focusing on ‘Wisdom’ and thinking about building on firm foundations.

The children have been busy in school creating work for the Eco-churches project that is due to be displayed at the start of October. The children have been thinking about sustainability and how we can save the planet without costing the earth!

This week we will be having our first celebration assembly where parents are invited for a ‘long time’. I hope some of you can join us and see the children receive their certificates and hear about all of the reasons they are ‘Truly Brilliant’.

I hope you have an enjoyable rest of the week and good weekend when it finally arrives.

I look forward to seeing some of you at our celebration assembly on Friday when we once again ‘Reach for the Stars’.


Maple Class:
This week in Maple Class, we are enjoying reading ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ and have been retelling the story. We have also been practising counting accurately in maths and year 1 have been exploring number bonds to 5. We are so impressed with how well the children in Maple are settling into their year group and helping each other!


Cedar Class
This week in Cedar class we have been busy learning about the role of the monarch. During this time, we have been able to reflect on her Majesty's service and what her role was in our country. Moreover, we have been looking at making links in maths between bonds and also our times tables in year 3.


Damson Class:
This week in Damson Class, we have been using mental strategies to solve addition and subtractions problems in Maths. Whilst in Literacy, we are looking at Information Texts. We are also learning about the importance of water conservation and designing/perfecting posters for the Kenilworth Eco Fayre.


Oak Class:
A very productive week of work ranging from calculating with decimals in maths, reading a new text – The Island and comprehending the messages behind the story in English to creating Eco posters and understanding which prime ministers led us into World War II. All children in Oak Class have settled into this academic year well.
