Burton Green Academy Newsletter 29th June 2022

Dear Parents,
We have had a busy week preparing for our Summer Fayre this Friday evening.  We hope that as many of you as possible can join us for this exciting event (6-8pm).


I have had the chance this week to enjoy watching the children in Damson class extend their learning in shape and space.  I was very impressed with the children’s knowledge on this topic and how many of them could visualise the shapes without needing to look at them.


In Maple class I got to see how well they are doing in their phonics learning.  They are so fast at doing this now that they are almost as fast as the teachers!  Wow keep it up!


I look forward to seeing you on Friday when we will once again ‘Reach for the Stars’.


I hope we can all have a restful (and dry) weekend.


Maple Class: 
This week has been very exciting as our caterpillars have become chrysalides and we have had two more tadpoles change into froglets!  We have also worked in teams to create our own Superworm stories and have used fantastic adjectives to describe.


Cedar Class: 
This week we have learnt a little more about the Rainhill trials and The Rocket, using historical evidence to create a timeline. In addition, the children have really enjoyed starting our new literacy topic on adventure stories.


Damson Class
This week in Damson Class, we have been looking at area and perimeter in Maths and in Literacy, we are working hard to develop our editing skills. In Topic, we are learning about the life of Alexander the Great. In relation to this, we are thinking about whether our sources of information our reliable or not.


Oak Class:
This week in Oak Class we have been focussed on our transition preparation ahead of our visits to secondary schools. Everyone is starting to feel fully prepared now. We have been finalising preparations for our enterprise project – we hope everyone will visit our stalls on Friday at the Summer Fayre. Learning about Banks and the way they make money has helped us to go over calculating interest rates too.
