Burton Green Academy Newsletter 10th December 2020

It has been a really busy week with the preparation for the productions in readiness for the shows. I have been ‘blown away’ by the amazing performances that we have seen for the film.  We are still busy editing them all together and when complete the children will get a chance to watch in school with their friends next week.  The link will be sent home for you all to enjoy; you are in for a real treat!


Next week is incredibly busy with Christmas lunch, parties and a Virtual Panto.  We would love the children to wear their Christmas jumpers on Wednesday for their Christmas lunch and Friday for the last day of term.  Party day is Thursday 17th December when the children can wear their party clothes.


Could I please thank you for continuing to socially distance at school drop off/collections and adhering to the staggered start/finish times.  This makes such a difference and we are mindful that we would hate any families to have to self-isolate over Christmas, due to a bubble shutting after the 10th December.


As always, I look forward to celebrating with you all on Friday with our celebration assembly when we will once again ‘Reach for the Stars’.

Maple Class: 
This week we have been busy getting for the Christmas production and have all being doing a super job! We can’t wait for you to see it! We 
have also been making our own non-fiction booklets about owls to finish off our non-fiction topic on nocturnal animals.

Cedar Class: 
This week I would like to say a big well done to the children for doing so well in the filming of the Christmas play. They worked really hard to make this as special as they could under the circumstances. Well done Cedar Class!

Damson Class: 
This week we have been busy rehearsing and filming our parts for the school production. The costumes are amazing (thank you parents). Also, we have been building our websites, organising our text and images and thinking carefully about our layout.

Oak Class: 
This week we have been busy calculating fractions and mixed numbers in numeracy, rehearsing for our Christmas play/ film as well as making our Christmas cards and calendars. We also helped plant spring time bulbs around the protected oak tree at the top of Red Lane.
