Burton Green Academy Newsletter 28th September 2022
We have once again been busy with our learning across the school.
I got an opportunity this week to see some of the science learning that was taking place in Cedar class.
The children in year 2 were very knowledgeable about germs and they certainly enjoyed demonstrating with some green paint, whilst the children in year 3 were very excited about their explosive volcano work.
Our theme within our assemblies this week is once again wisdom. This week we were thinking about what wisdom really means and the wisdom that we can gain from our parents. Hopefully this will result in some great questions at home, probing your own knowledge!
We are once again celebrating on Friday morning at 9:10 when we will ‘Reach for the Stars’ and celebrate your children’s achievements. If you are available, you are more than welcome to join us.
This week we have created our own story inspired by ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’. We created a new character and have planned our story for ‘The Leopard Who came to Lunch’. In maths we have been learning to find 1 more than a number and have been revisiting our careful counting skills. We have also been learning about recycling and how we can be eco-friendly to take care of our planet.
The class have enjoyed using their knowledge of Queen Elizabeth I in our monarchy topic to make a beautiful collage. In addition, we have been working hard on shape and time in our mathematics.
This week in Damson Class, we have been looking at 2 place decimals and using times table knowledge in Maths. Whilst in literacy, we have been looking at altering sentence structures, to improve our writing. This is within our focus of Information Text. We have also been learning more about artefacts and sources of evidence for our Stone Age topic.
This week Oak Class have completed a baseline assessment of SAT papers. They have concentrated well and maximised their efforts.
In maths they have covered BODMAS and in English they have all written short stories to end our Outsiders unit.
