Burton Green Academy Newsletter 24th November 2021
We have had an enjoyable week where everybody has once again been working hard.
We have been continuing thinking about Trust within our assemblies and thinking about what qualities makes a person trustworthy. This helps the children to think about how they can become trustworthy and a good friend to people 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. It is quickly becoming a very busy time of the year, but most definitely one full of excitement!
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 we have started to explore non-fiction books to find out some really interesting facts about space! In maths, we have been learning to use positional language and will also be learning to compare and measure length towards the end of the week.
In Cedar class this week we have been weaving our own tartan patterns. As you know, we have been reading Katie Morag and finding out about where she lives and what it is like there. They have enjoyed making the tartan patterns as a new skirt for Katie.
In Damson Class this week we have been measuring angles using protractors (year 5) and converting weights between grams and kilograms (year 4). We are also looking at Classic Poetry in Literacy and performing some of the poems we are learning about.
In Oak Class we have been calculating; perimeter and area of various compound shapes and triangles as well as volume. We have been writing instructions connected to our world war topic work – using rationing recipes. We also cooked and tasted a lettuce, parsley and potato soup and some rock cakes.
