It’s our last Friday’s message of Autumn 1 half-term.
Today’s a training day in school. All the teachers across Sphere Federation have gathered together to learn more about Maths, PE and Art. They’re learning about it in a carousel of phases – Early Years and Y1,2 in one, Y3,4 in another, and Y5,6 in the third.
In last week’s message, we announced our new Junior Leadership Team. This week, we thought you might like to read some of their favourite aspects of Moortown Primary…
- YR Edie – “I like being a JLT leader and wearing my badge.”
- YR Gurjeevan – “I love Phonics!”
- Y1 Avraj – “Our PE lessons are fun because we get to play fun games.”
- Y1 Thomas – “I like school because we get to play dodgeball, basketball and dodgeball in the MUGA.”
- Y2 Isla – “I like learning new and tricky words in my writing lessons.”
