Burton Green Academy Newsletter 30th November 2022

Dear Parents,
This week rehearsals have been continuing for both our production and carol concert.


It is so special to see the children rehearsing and embracing the opportunity to sing our traditional carols and the more modern songs that go with our production.


The classes have been busy creating their pictures for the advent calendar and we are looking forward to starting this exciting tradition tomorrow!


Within our assemblies this week we were thinking about the start of advent and what this exciting time of year means to us all.  We certainly enjoyed listening to ‘Ode to Joy’ as we came into the hall today.


Behind the scenes we are very grateful for the support of the PTFA as they support us with books for our library and new bean bags for our conservatory area.  In addition, they are once again supporting the school pantomime and they are already sorting out food for the Christmas parties and a sweet treat to enjoy during the pantomime. Their help and support is really appreciated.  Our school Christmas Fayre is ‘on’ this Friday (5:30-7:30pm) and it will be a great opportunity for everybody to support the school.


I look forward to once again reaching for the stars on Friday and then seeing everybody enjoying themselves at the Christmas Fayre!

Maple Class: 
This week in Maple we are busy practising our songs and dances for the Christmas show! We are also enjoying our new role play area – Santa’s Workshop and in literacy we have been writing some super descriptions about different Christmas characters.


Cedar Class
We have started road safety week in style learning about how to be amazingly safe on and around the roads. We have completed some work on animation in our Computing lessons. We have been focusing specifically on Christmassy, stop-frame animations and the software we use to create these. 

Damson Class:
In Damson Class this week, we have been developing the complexity of our sentence structure in English and working on Division in Maths. In addition to this, we have been generating questions on the Stone Age settlement of Star Carr, as well as painting our Topic themed calendars.

Oak Class:
In Oak Class, this week we have designed and created mini model World War II gardens they included Anderson shelters. We also wrote instructions (English) to inform readers of how we created our models. We have been working on our Christmas production as well as learning to calculate percentages in maths. It has been a busy week.
