Burton Green Academy Newsletter 23rd September 2020
Time is again flying as we enjoy a fun filled week of learning. As I have gone around the school it has been lovely to see the children enjoying the challenges within their learning. I have been lucky enough to see Damson class busily working on their science learning this week and Maple class where our reception children are settling in really well and our Year 1 children are growing up so fast!
I would be grateful if any parents who are likely to run late for collection at the end of the day notify the office. At the moment we need to keep bubble groups separate and this causes issues when we have groups at the end of the day.
We will once again be filming our virtual celebration assembly this week, as it gives us a chance as a community to come together and celebrate the wonderful achievements of the children within the school.
Have a wonderful weekend when it finally appears.
This week we are enjoying the story ‘The Tiger Who Came To Tea’ and will be creating our own stories with an animal visitor! In maths we are creating repeating patterns and are finding all of the ways to make 5 and 6. We have also been learning about Autumn and are on the look out for autumn objects outside!
This week the children have enjoyed making links between nurses, past and present.
In R.E we have been learning about the life of Moses and considering what this teaches Christians about the ideas of freedom and justice. Also, in music, we have been listening and creating pieces of music inspired by space which has involved us considering the images that a piece of music creates in our mind.
This week we finished our Outsiders Unit and have started out Persuasion Unit of work in literacy – writing letters to Mr Morris. In numeracy we have been calculating with decimal numbers and are starting some basic algebra. Some fabulous sketches of Winston Churchill are also now on the wall of our class (a picture will be added to our website class page).
