On Monday, Year 2 received a very important letter from Boris Johnson with some fantastic news. We were relieved to find out that despite restrictions for Covid 19, luckily Santa will still be able to come and visit out houses to deliver our presents. He also sent some books for us to read which we enjoyed after making our own hot chocolate. It was delicious and definitely warmed us up on a cold day.
Year 2 have been very creative this last week and have created their own Christmas decoration. For lots of us it was the first time we have sewn so we learnt lots of skills! It was hard work but we think our trees look amazing and can't wait to hang them on our own tree at home.
