Year 1/2 – Saint Nicholas

Welcome to Saint Nicholas Class! I am really excited to be your class teacher this year, we will be joined by Mrs Robinson.

Saint Nicholas was born almost 2000 years ago. He was from a place called Lycia, which is now known as Turkey. He lived with his mother and father who were wealthy people. Saint Nicholas was a kind boy from a very young age. When he was young, his parents died and he went to live with his uncle who was a bishop. Saint Nicholas used the money left to him by his parents to help people who were sick, poor or needy. Saint Nicholas is the patron saint of sailors, archers and children. Saint Nicholas is also known as 'Santa Claus' or 'Father Christmas' and he is celebrated by many people at Christmas time as he brings gifts to children. 

The children in our class have made fact files about what they found out about Saint Nicholas. 


Here is some of the work our children have done over the past few weeks.
