Burton Green Academy Newsletter 22nd March 2023

Dear Parents,
It was so lovely to see so many of you at our Mother’s Day celebration on Monday.  It was so special to see the children performing to you all and the pure love that was in the room as they talked about their mother figures who care and look after them.  Many apologies that this needed to be delayed from last Friday and that the sound on the recording was very quiet.


This week has continued to be a hive of activity, as I have got the chance to hear Damson class busily rehearsing for the Easter play.  This is always a special time of the year and I know they will once again do us proud next Friday when they perform.


I do genuinely feel that the challenging work and enthusiasm that the children and staff put into everything they do - could easily run a small country!


Next week our Eco warriors in Damson and Oak class will be joining other children within Kenilworth to start our ‘war’ on single use plastic.  This starts with our ‘trash mob’ where we will be finding the evidence to write to our local MP and companies about this waste.  It should be a good opportunity to get the children thinking about how we save our planet from unnecessary waste.


I look forward to seeing you when we celebrate the children’s achievements on Friday when we once again ‘Reach for the Stars’.

Maple Class: 
This week in Maple Class we have been exploring materials in science. We carried out experiments to find out which fabric would be the best choice for repairing Mrs Carroll’s broken umbrella! In literacy we have created Max’s next adventure to space and are busy writing our super stories.

Cedar Class
This week in Cedar we have looked at what made the Vikings successful and their methods of travel. In literacy we have been reading The Library Lion and re-writing the story of the Lion at BGA.

Damson Class:
This week in Damson Class, we have been looking at Twisted Fairy Tales in Literacy and revising the properties of shape, converting weight & reading scales in Maths. We have also been learning more about mountains and how they are formed in Topic work.

Oak Class:
This week we have been creating and interpreting data from line graphs and pie charts in maths. We have started our Graffiti Unit in English. We researched graffiti artists and selected our favourites – currently we are each writing a biography on the artist we chose. In our topic work we are looking at the artwork of Fredrick Catherwood – he sketched and painted primary sources of evidence which support our historical understanding of life in ancient Maya times.
