Young learners across the AET academies network entered the true festive spirit and put their creative talents to good use in the lead up to the Christmas break.
They were invited to submit their entries in two competitions; one to create a Festive Video and the other to provide the designs for the AET Christmas Card. Each competition consisted of three categories - primary, secondary and special.
Schools were encouraged to involve as many children and staff as possible in the video production on a seasonal theme. Bexleyheath Academy in Kent adopted the now legendary 'Let it Go' music from the Disney epic video, 'Frozen.' It immediately went viral registering up to 10,000 'hits' in a single day.
Every child at Montgomery Primary Academy in Birmingham, over 600 of them, featured in a 'signing' presentation of Christmas carols, while Pioneer Special Academy in Essex produced another excellent whole school production in 'Let It Snow.'
AET is very grateful to RM Education and BrainPOP for kindly providing prizes to the winning schools.
