Burton Green Academy Newsletter 29th January 2020
The children have again been working hard and it is lovely to see the hard work the children and staff put in to all of their learning. Within school, I see such amazing learning within the arts, humanities and sciences, which really help to give the children the breadth of curriculum that they need at this age. I know you will be all looking forward to talking about this learning and seeing it at our parent consultations that are coming up soon before half term.
I was very pleased this week to receive an email from Mathletics telling me that Ayaan in Cedar class had managed to secure first place in the UK's top 100 students. There are more than 4,000 schools in the UK using Mathletics so to secure 1st place is amazing! Well done Ayaan keep up the good work 😊
The weather is still wet, but with occasional glimpses of cold. Whilst unlikely, if there is any need to shut the school due to bad weather or an unforeseen event, we will be using the Warwickshire online system which notifies through the local radio, the text to parents system.
I look forward to seeing you all on Friday for our celebration assembly where we can celebrate once more!
Class Highlights of the Week:
This week we are exploring the story of ‘Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs’ and we will be creating our own dinosaur adventure stories over the next few weeks! In maths we are learning to count in 2s, 5s and 10s so could you please help us to practise this at home too.
The children and I have been discussing online safety and strategies we can employ to do so. Our recent focus in Music and French has been on Camille Saint-Saens whereby we have been learning names of animals and listening to the famous Carnival of the animals.
We have been busy finishing our '500' word competition stories. Also, in R.E we have considering why people choose to worship whilst also learning about the different features of a Hindu, Jewish and Christian places of worship.
Another busy week. We have been working on our career plans and working out how to step towards success. In RE we have been analysing 15 lessons given from the Sermon on the Mount in order to understand them more clearly. In numeracy we have been revising shape, angles, perpendicular and parallel.
