Year 2, we have loved being your teachers this year and are so sad that we could not spend the whole year with you all. However, we have so many lovely memories of the times we spent together and are so proud of all that you have achieved. You are all so hardworking, and the work you have produced both in school and at home has been amazing. We are confident that you will have a brilliant time in Year 3 - where you will learn lots of new exciting things, enjoy getting to know your new teachers, and make lots of lovely memories.
We hope that you all have a lovely summer with your family before coming back to school in September.
