Year 2 welcomes Alex

Posted by Sarah Marlow, 18/02/2019

The Year 2 children were very excited to welcome Alex today. We listened to his story and we looked at the map to see all the places he has visited. Then we listened to his special song. Alex helped the children learn how to introduce themselves in German and to say where they live. We can't wait to learn more words in German. We are excited that he is going to be spending a whole week with us.
