Burton Green Academy Newsletter 22nd January 2020
I must start the newsletter by saying how proud I was of the children who attended Young Voices last week. It was a truly amazing experience that was made better by the behaviour and attitude of all the children of Burton Green Academy that attended this event and a huge thank you to the staff. Well done everyone!
On another note I would like to welcome Mrs Lisa White to the Burton Green team. Mrs White is our new administrator who is busy learning all of our systems.
Can I continue to remind you all about parking safely and not manoeuvring your cars near the children or in the staff car park. Please ensure all people who pick up and drop your children are aware of this as child safety is a paramount concern of all of us at school. I know the road gets very busy outside the school, but extra care and caution where there is still ‘poor light’ is necessary to avoid any accidents.
I must apologise that I am at a meeting on Friday and will miss our celebration assembly. As always, I would ask you all to celebrate the children’s fantastic achievements and ensure they feel like the stars they are undoubtedly are.
I hope you have a lovely weekend, when it finally arrives.
Class Highlights of the Week:
This week we are performing poems in literacy and have been making up some super actions to go with them! We are also going to be finding out all about Chinese New Year and will be tasting some different foods.
This week our topic has focused on the temperature change and features of mountains. The children have really got stuck in! In maths we have been developing our knowledge of number bonds in year 2 and using placevalue to round numbers in year 3.
This week we have been planning and drafting and perfecting our mystery stories for the 500 Word competition. The class have been finding and using some amazing adjectives! Also, we have been locating some of the world's tropical rainforests and in RE we have been looking at features of places of worship.
This week we have been revising adverbial and prepositional phrases as well as planning our flashback narrative writing pieces based on our parents memories from secondary school.
In numeracy we have been calculating multiplications with decimal numbers. We are looking at Maya Gods in our topic work and are creating Gods we feel would have fitted with others they worshipped.
