Burton Green Academy Newsletter 23rd November 2022
We have had an enjoyable week where everybody has once again been working hard.
We have been continuing to think about Peace within our assemblies and thinking about how we can behave to encourage peace to others within our school and homes.
This helps the children to think about how they can become a good friend and encourage good behaviour and kindness within our school.
Rehearsals for our Christmas production are now well on the way and we are busily planning the start of December as we look forward to starting our Burton Green Advent calendar next week and our Christmas Fair on Friday evening!
It is quickly becoming a very busy time of the year, but most definitely one full of excitement! We’ve even managed to fit in some first aid training for Damson and Oak amongst the Christmas festivities.
I look forward to celebrating with you all at the end of the week as we once again ‘Reach for the Stars’ in our assembly on Friday. I hope you have a lovely weekend, when it finally arrives!
This week in Maple Class we have been creating super information posters about Hedgehogs to finish our non-fiction unit about nocturnal animals. We have also been practising our super adding skills in maths and have been exploring the properties of materials in science.
This week we have been working really hard on lots of Christmassy surprises including the songs for the performance. In addition, we have been securing our learning about The Great Fire of London. We will eventually be making Tudor houses out of Modroc and the children have been busy planning what these will look like.
This week in Damson Class, we have been learning how to improve our descriptive writing in Literacy. Whilst in Maths, we have been using different methods to multiply 3 & 4-digit numbers. Aside from this, we have been busy rehearsing for our Christmas Production.
In Oak Class this week we have had a busy week with our Christmas Production rehearsals, a first aid training session – Flat Stan as well as a school visit to Coventry Cathedral and Herbert Art Gallery. Our trip was a great way to support our learning: in RE - identifying signs and symbols within the Cathedral and in our topic work with a World War II workshop at the gallery learning about roles people held in the home front.
