Burton Green Academy Newsletter 6th October 2021
It was so lovely on the weekend displaying the children’s recycling work for the Eco Fayre in Kenilworth. The children were passionate about their ideas and making a difference and enjoyed sharing the ways in which we can all make a difference.
It is so lovely seeing the year 6 supporting their buddies in reception class. It is something that was greatly missed last year, and I know that both year 6 and reception benefit greatly from this partnership. Well done Oak class for being such great role models!
Parent consultation forms have come out this week for you to book an appointment to talk to your child’s teacher. We look forward to talking to you about their progress and all of the things they have achieved.
I look forward to celebrating with you all during our celebration assembly on Friday.
Have a wonderful weekend, when it finally arrives!
This week in Maple Class we have been exploring a new story called ‘Not a Stick’ and have been using our imaginations to think about what the stick could become – we've had some brilliant ideas! In Science, we have started to explore our senses and this week we explored our sense of smell. We also enjoyed our first Wellie Wednesday session that was all about Autumn!
This week in Cedar Class we have been creating our own castle and looking virtually at the best locations we could choose. This has given us an insight into castle defences. We have also started our French teaching so hopefully the children will be bringing home some handy phrases in no time.
In Damson class this week, we have been learning about digital and analogue times in Maths and Classic Fiction in Literacy. We have also been looking at the work of William Morris and using them to inspire our own unique designs.
We have focussed our history, literacy and art work this week on our World War II topic looking at advertisements in literacy, creating propaganda posters in art and writing letters from an evacuee’s point of view in history.
