Burton Green Academy Newsletter 22nd May 2019
Today has been a lovely week with pleasant weather and the children enjoying their learning. I once again had the pleasure of talking to the children about their learning this week and it was lovely to hear how all of the children value their topic work, the different types of writing (they were proud of their ‘really long’ pieces!) and they explained how they enjoy showing their mathematical learning through their mastery work. I saw Oak class continue to work hard on their extended writing and their preparation and plans for their tea party at the end of term and enterprise initiative.
I can’t believe that we have almost got to the end of half term! Enjoy the half term break and remember no school on Friday!
Class Highlights of the Week:
This week in Literacy we have been writing 'Who am I?' books about African animals. We wrote clues on the front and then challenged a friend to read them and guess which animal they thought it was. They then opened the book to see if they were right! We are also really looking forward to being Scientists for the rest of the week and will be completing some interesting experiments!
We enjoyed creating parachutes to test air resistance with Maple Class. It was lovely to see Cedar Class looking so grown up helping our Maple class friends.
We have been enjoying Science week by exploring how astronauts go to the loo! We have designed, conducted and evaluated experiments to measure absorbency, made careful observations of flying poo and measured how far our space buggies could travel. It's been quite a week!
Oak Class impressed Miss V with the way in which they coped with their SAT tests last week, it was made as stress free and relaxing as possible. This week we are busy with creating an end of school show for our parents and we are learning some country dances ready to perform at Kenilworth Castle. A real contrast to SATs but still learning new skills.
