Burton Green Academy Newsletter 3rd July 2019
Another week has flown by at Burton Green with so much still happening. The children in Damson (children in Year 5) and Oak are busy packing in readiness for their adventure next week and Oak are preparing for their Garden Party on Friday afternoon. As I have popped into Damson class I have seen them working hard on lots of lovely work and I can’t wait to see them all dressed up tomorrow for their Egyptian day!
I can’t forget the fantastic Summer Fayre on Friday evening where we enjoyed fantastic stalls, lovely food, entertainment and an amazing atmosphere. Many thanks to our PTFA for organising this event and for all their hard work in the previous weeks and months. This amazing event has raised £1800 profit for the school. Well done to everybody who came and supported this event.
I will definitely remember the gunge! 😊
I look forward to seeing you on Friday for our celebration assembly where we will once again reach for those stars!
Class Highlights of the Week:
This week we are busy writing pirate character descriptions to try and find our stolen treasure! In maths we have been learning to tell the time and have been focussing on o'clock, half past and quarter past times. Please encourage us to have a go at home too. We are already trying to use our classroom clock to tell the time during the day and are doing really well!
This week we have really enjoyed practising for our Class Assembly and can’t wait to show everyone next Tuesday - we look forward to seeing you all then!
We have been looking forward to meeting Cleopatra on Thursday for our Egyptian day. Also, in literacy we have been learning tricks to help us memorise poems and perform them in interesting ways.
Wow – the whole class worked extremely hard to create profits running their stalls at the Summer Fayre. Boys team won with a tiny margin but well done to everyone. Transition days to Secondary School have taken place for all children – as a result nerves have subsided and excitement has taken its place.
