Burton Green Academy Newsletter 2nd December 2020
Another busy week as our preparation for everything Christmas ‘hots up’. Despite us not being able to invite you to the production in school the stage is still up, rehearsal timetable is set and the singing is excitement is building.
Could I please remind you to park sensibly and allow plenty of time at both drop off and collection times? We are aware of the difficulties of parking issues and frustrations when there are traffic issues in and around school. We would stress that the children are our priority and their safety is paramount. Accidents can and do happen so please always take every precaution. Thank you for your patience on these matters and your continued support.
Thank you for all of your hard work/support with our Teams homework trial. It has been great to implement this and to see any hiccups and to iron these out. I would also like to thank the staff for embracing these changes and working tirelessly behind the scenes to keep a Christmas feel in a Covid safe way :-)
I hope you have a good rest of the week and that you enjoy your weekend when it finally gets here. See you on Friday for our virtual celebration assembly.
This week we have been doing lots of adding in maths and have been exploring number bonds. We are continuing to research information about nocturnal animals and have learnt some really interesting facts!
The children have really enjoyed this week painting Great fire of London scenarios using silhouette. In addition, our work on the books is continuing to engage the children's interest in relation to letter writing.
This week we have begun to prepare some text about the Stone Age for our websites. Also, we have been busy learning our lines for the school production as well as investigating narrative story techniques to improve our writing.
Well it’s December so now we can officially start to celebrate with some usual traditions. Rehearsals are in full swing so to match up we are studying play script features in literacy. In maths addition and subtraction of fractions and finding common denominators has been our focus. We are planning for our Design Technology day in topic work focussing on shelters used in World War II. A busy week all round.
