Burton Green Academy Newsletter 16th December 2020
This week has been a really busy week in school with Christmas lunch, the Virtual Panto and the parties to come tomorrow!
It is such a special time within school where we get to see the children enjoying the marvel of Christmas and their building excitement. The children thoroughly enjoyed the Pantomime and it was lovely to see their faces as they tried to tell me about all the different amazing elements. Many thanks to the PTFA for paying for ‘Christmas’ this year with the pantomime, party food and the ice creams all kindly donated.
Many thanks for your generosity of the gifts and cards that have been already given to all the staff in school. It is greatly appreciated.
Could I remind you about sensible parking and not manoeuvring your cars close to the school. It is so easy for an accident to happen and with failing light at the end of the day it is hard to see the children. I never want to be in the position where I am emailing about a tragic accident.
On a more festive note the School Christmas performance link will be emailed on Friday for you to enjoy over the Christmas break.
To conclude it has been a difficult year for everybody and I hope you have a time as a family to relax and enjoy the time together. I’m sure
we will all be raising our glasses in the hope of a better 2021.
We are on the countdown to Christmas now and are busy with lots of Christmas crafts! We are focussing on the story of the first Christmas in Literacy and have been retelling it. We have also been thinking about how each person in the story felt and have been sharing what we are thankful for this Christmas. Have a fantastic Christmas Maple Class!
The children have enjoyed embracing Christmas and all things Christmassy. The Panto was a smash hit in Cedar class and our Christmas lunch was really enjoyable. We look forward to our Christmas parties and watching our own Christmas performances later in the week!
We have been busy finding amazing vocabulary
to improve our smiles and metaphors for our
winter poems. Also, we have enjoyed making Christmas cards and completing Christmas mystery maths challenges.
We have had a busy week making Christmas cards, understanding the importance of war time songs and creating some of our own, calculating fractions with multiplication and division as well as percentages. Everyone is looking forward to the Christmas holidays and a well-deserved break.
