Hello Year 2! 

 

Well done on completing your first term in year 2! You have all worked so very hard this term and have grown up so much already!

 

Thank you all for making my first term at St Alban's so lovely, and thank you for your very kind cards and gifts. 

 

Christmas Holiday Homework

 

Our topic next term is called Movers and Shakers. We are going to be learning all about people who have had a major impact on the world. Over the holiday I would like you to look at the knowledge organiser below and then find out some interesting facts about one or more of the people we are going to be learning about! 

 

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and I am looking forward to seeing you all back in school in January!
