Dear Parents and Carers
To see what’s been happening at BGPS, please go to our website and Twitter feed:
This morning was very exciting as the children did their Christmas shopping at Elfridges. Thank you so much to the PTA and especially Fran, Stuart, Stacey and Kaylie for running the event. There were lots of different gifts for sale, and it was lovely to see the children thinking about their family and friends as they chose what to purchase, and then wrapped it. I feel really Christmassy now!
Don’t forget to book your child’s Christmas Lunch as soon as possible. Roast Turkey or Roasted Vegetable & Stuffing Tart https://app.schoolgrid.co.uk/
Scholastic Book Club
Thank you for your book orders through Scholastic Book Club – you have raised £15.71. We shall be opening this club frequently as your purchases help towards new books for school.
We are very pleased that our Covid rate has remained low again this week – just one case in Teresa Class at the beginning of the week. Please remember to look out for symptoms, and book a PCR test if your child is feeling unwell. https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
(Please note that whilst the three key symptoms are a continuous cough, raised temperature and change in taste/smell, additional signs in children include upset stomach, headache, runny nose, sneezing, sore throat and unusual fatigue.)
Please check our school website for information about future events, term dates, training days etc. http://www.burroughgreen.cambs.sch.uk/website/calendar/386598
