Burton Green Academy Newsletter 6th November 2019
Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn term. I hope you all had an enjoyable rest at half term and that you are all ready for the build up to Christmas!
The children have come back to school with an air of excitement and enthusiasm that has been lovely to see. We have some exciting things planned this term and one of the first is that our choir will be going to Radio Coventry next week (date to be confirmed but we have provisionally booked Friday) to record some Christmas Carols to be played over the Christmas period. It’s all very exciting with lots to do, especially as we only found out the song titles yesterday!
On a very sad note, Mrs Choudry will be leaving us on the 15th November to start her new job as a Business Manager at a local school. She will be greatly missed by all of us, as she offers the unique balance between efficiency and professionalism and the friendly face at the office who is always willing to help everybody. I’m sure you’ll all join me in wishing her the very best and acknowledging what a huge loss this is to Burton Green Academy.
I look forward to seeing some of you at our assembly on Friday when we will have a bumper helping of certificates from all of the hard work the children have put in during the week at school and the half term period!
Class Highlights of the Week:
In Maths we have been measuring lengths. We have enjoyed measuring each other and other objects in the classroom. In Literacy we have been reading the book “Whatever Next” and creating our own version.
Cedar Class: We have started our topic by looking at the four different countries that make the United Kingdom.
This week we have been learning about our rights and responsibilities in terms of keeping ourselves and others safe through our Protective Behaviours work. Also, we have been identifying our safe places and people who we can trust to go to when something isn't right.
Everyone in Oak class has worked very hard this week working to calculate multiplications including word questions. We also have been identifying features of non chronological reports. Our protective behaviours work has stimulated many interesting discussions.
