Letter from Mrs Bell.
Dear Year 2,
I am really missing school and I never thought schools would be closed whilst I was recovering from my operation! I was really looking forward to coming back and seeing all of you and now, it seems that I will have to wait!
I really miss your class...every single one of you because you are such a fun and lively class! If you are at home, make sure you are working hard and treating the family well! You have been amazing in Y2 and Mr Smith, Mrs Rasdale and I are SO proud of you. If you are at school, I hope you are having a lovely time and getting plenty of fresh air.
You are all in my thoughts and I am really looking forward to seeing you all again. Please don't worry about anything and remember, when you are my age you will realise that you are a part of history as nothing like this has happened before. Children one day will be learning about you! Miss you!
Mrs Bell x
Welcome to Year 2!
