Burton Green Academy Newsletter 22nd September 2021
It has been another busy week with the children continuing to enjoy their learning in school.
Within our assemblies we have been focusing on ‘Thankfulness’ and thinking about all of the food that we are thankful for and the hard work that goes into ensuring we have plenty of food to eat.
It was nice to see so many people attending our virtual welcome evenings last week which gave the teachers an opportunity to talk through expectations, routines and topics whilst hopefully giving you a flavour of what to expect this year.
I hope you enjoyed the recording of the virtual assembly that was sent out last week. We will be reviewing parents attending these after October half term, but at the moment our key priority is ensuring we keep all members of our community as ‘Covid free’ as possible.
I hope you have a good weekend when it finally arrives and I look forward to celebrating the children’s achievements on Friday when we once again ‘Reach for the Stars’.
This week in Maple Class we are really enjoying our new story – Supertato! We have been busy trying to stop the Evil Pea causing mischief and have also created our own superfruit and superveg characters. We have been using some great adjectives to describe them.
The children have really enjoyed learning about the abstract artist Paul Klee this week, in particular his painting ‘Castle in the Sun’. We evaluated his painting and then created our own.
In Damson Class this week the children have been learning about recounts and in doing so, reading about UFO sightings. This has stirred their imaginations and this week they will write some of their own. We are hoping for some out of this world writing!
In Oak Class this week we have revising our addition skills using decimal numbers and calculating money problems. In literacy we have written our own stories on the theme of ‘outsiders’ and how they are received. We have also been working in groups to produce posters on about composting outlining the benefits of it.
