Burton Green Academy Newsletter 22nd June 2022
It has been another busy and hot week!
Within school we are busily working within class and also our PTFA are busily preparing for our Summer Fayre on Friday 1st July.
We are looking forward to welcoming you all in on that evening and are keeping our fingers crossed for good weather. If you are keen to volunteer, please contact the office and they will put you in contact with one of our PTFA team.
This week has been an exciting week in year 6 as the children have been enjoying their bikeability training. So far, they have been lucky with the weather and have hopefully enjoyed this new and exciting challenge!
Last week we got to meet some of our new reception children and we will meet more of them this week. There was a fantastic atmosphere in the classroom and I’m so proud of how the children in Maple class welcomed their new friends and showed them the routines and demonstrated great friendship.
We have lots going on over the following weeks so please keep reading the newsletter, emails and our texts to ensure you don’t miss out on anything! You can also subscribe to the School Calendar so that you can have all the events in your Phone calendar.
I look forward to seeing you on Friday when we will once again ‘Reach for the Stars’.
I hope we can all have a restful (and dry) weekend.
We are really enjoying watching our tadpoles and caterpillars grow and are discussing the changes that we can see. We have started our new book – Superworm! We have been writing character descriptions using some super adjectives. In maths we are exploring odd and even numbers and we are continuing to build our minibeast hotel during Wellie Wednesday!
Cedar class have finalised their digital artwork this week. We have been looking at our artist Arcimboldo who uses fruit to create wonderful artwork. In addition, we have been designing our own sandwiches for Mr Grinling in the lighthouse keeper’s lunch. The children have been carefully thinking about hygiene and look forward to making our sandwiches soon.
Damson Class have been working on a combination of times tables and different multiplication methods in Maths this week. We have also been writing our short fantasy stories.
In Topic work, we are looking at the different type of sources of evidence around Ancient Greek artefacts.
This week most of Oak Class have completed both Bikeability parts 1 and 2 which is a fabulous achievement. We have also been spending time firming up our planned enterprise projects and designing advertising posters – you will see these around school next week. We are all getting prepared for the transition to secondary school with meetings planned next week for most of us in school.
