Burton Green Academy Newsletter 25th November 2020
It has been another super busy week with so much happening in school.
It is exciting to see the classes begin their preparation for our Christmas play. Dance rehearsals, small group singing and acting have all been happening. It is lovely to feel the Christmas spirit beginning to enter school and see the children’s excitement build.
I have also had the pleasure of seeing Cedar class’s learning this week. They got to show me their learning within their English session. It was so nice to see how their writing is developing with their use of adjectives and conjunctions. I can imagine these skills will be very useful with their Christmas lists!
I look forward to celebrating with you on Friday in our virtual celebration assembly. Keep safe and have a good weekend, when it finally arrives.
This week we have started to explore non-fiction texts in Literacy and over the next few weeks will be finding out some interesting facts about nocturnal animals. In Science we have been exploring the properties of different materials.
The children have really enjoyed starting our new book 'Stuck' by Oliver Jeffers. It has been an interesting look into the genre of comedy and showing the children that they can enjoy and laugh at silly books.
We have been busy evaluating our DT and Art project as well as identifying the features of really good story writing. Also, in maths this week we have been using measures (grams and kilograms, metres and centimetres) and converting between them as well as measuring angles using a protractor.
This week we have been baking as part of our literacy- instruction texts, we followed a World War II ration recipe and enjoyed the results. We are starting our acting rehearsals this week for the Christmas production too
