Burton Green Academy Newsletter 23rd March 2022
It has been an enjoyable week as we have been preparing for our Mother’s Day Assembly on Friday. It will be an opportunity to once again welcome parents back into school. For those of you who are not able to attend, or are still concerned about the high levels of Covid within school we are recording the assembly which will then be placed on Youtube for you to enjoy.
I have had the pleasure of seeing some of the fantastic work that Maple class has been completing this week. They have been trying so hard on their learning and I can’t believe how well they are using their phonic knowledge in their writing! Wow is the only word I can use!
I must also comment on the fantastic behaviour from the children in Cedar class during their swimming. I have received comments from other schools on how good it is 😊
On the 1st April we are planning on having a non-uniform day (wear yellow or blue) and collecting money for the people of Ukraine. In addition, we will be drawing a dove of peace on the playground to see if we can cover it with small change.
I look forward to seeing our ‘Mum’ figures on Friday for our assembly or Maple afternoon tea.
I hope you have a good weekend when it finally arrives.
This week in Maple Class we have been retelling the Three Little Pigs story and the children have been using some fantastic expression! We have been learning how to tell the time in maths and have been focussing on o’clock times. We are really looking forward to afternoon tea on Friday for our Mother’s Day celebration!
This week we are really getting to grips with the expansion of the Roman empire. Using our atlas skills and map knowledge to name the countries Rome used to rule over. Year 2s are beginning to answer some SATs style arithmetic questions each day in maths in order to learn the format of the test and what will be expected. Moreover, we are all continuing to learn some valuable life skills in PSHE, learning all about river and water safety.
In Damson Class this week we are writing ‘shiver’ stories in Literacy, trying to keep the balance between scary and terrifying in check! In maths we are looking at improper fractions and decimal numbers. Aside from this, we are gearing up for our Easter production - now we have most of our cast back! We look forward to everyone seeing our show.
This week we have started some revision sessions for both maths and spag. We have also been working on a few surprises ready for Mother’s Day celebrations. In RE we have learnt about Holy Communion and its significance for Roman Catholics.
