Welcome to the Marvellous Marvels, ‘marvellous’ by name as well as by nature!

Our teachers

We are one of the Y2 classes, and our teacher is Ms Keen. Miss Jackson helps us every morning in class too.


Please make sure you have your PE kit in school everyday as whilst we have allocated sessions these can change at short notice.  PE kits will be sent home each half term for a wash.  All items should be clearly named and in a bag for your child to hang on their peg. – same bit about earings

Core Values

Every day, we work hard to show our school’s 9 core values and we love getting dojo points for showing these independently:


  • using good manners;
  • actively listen and respond positively;
  • value difference.


  • self-regulate;
  • attend, be on time and engage;
  • create a calm and organised environment.


  • seek help and accept support;
  • have courage, encourage others;
  • learn from mistakes.

What are we learning?

We love learning new things and having fun together.

This year, we will base our learning around the following half-termly topics (a history focus for the 1st half-term and geography for the 2nd):

  • How life has changed within living memory (Autumn Term 1)
  • Map skills (Autumn Term 2)
  • Gunpowder Plot (Spring Term 1)
  • Capital Cities (Spring Term 2)
  • Kings, Queens and castles (Summer Term 1)
  • Kenya, Africa (Summer Term 2)


Reading is vital in your child’s development. Please try and read for 10 minutes every day to encourage their learning and your child will be rewarded for reading so please support them.

Punctuality and Attendance

It is vital that all children come to school organised and prepared for their day. Punctuality is really important as learning starts from 8.40am – children complete a morning challenge each day. They also need to be in and order their lunch before lining up to go to their phonics classes, which start at 9am. Please try to get your child in as close to 8:40 as possible, so that they have an organised and settled start to the day.


Class Dojo is a fantastic app for keeping in touch! Please note that messages can be sent to Miss Cooper directly and these will be acknowledged as soon as possible although an instant response is not always possible. Please contact the office if you need an immediate answer. Please also check out our class story regularly for important updates on our learning and celebrations of our achievements. If you have any questions or queries then please do not hesitate to contact Miss Cooper on Dojo or in person after school.

Parent Support

We know that a child’s success in school is supported by having a strong home-school relationship. We love to have visitors to our class to share a story or to listen to readers. Please contact Mrs Keen if you would like to drop in as we would love to see you. If you have any special skills, which you would like to share with the children then please get in touch as we would love to hear from you
