Welcome to Mr Roper's Class

Welcome to the Team

Meet the Team

Welcome to Year 2's, Mr Roper's 'Nelson Mandela Class'. My name is Mr Roper and I am extremely looking forward to another year at Longmoor. I can't believe that this is now my 8th year here now - time flies when you're having fun! I’m really excited about returning to year 2 as this is where I started my teaching career back in 2012.

I'm really excited about this year as we have lots of fantastic topics lined up - What would Dora the Explorer find exciting about Long Eaton? Why did the Titanic sink? Where would you prefer to live: England or Africa? What was it like when the Queen came to the throne in 1953? Why do we love to be beside the seaside? How have Rosa Parks and Nelson Mandela helped to make the world a better place?

In Science, we will be answering the questions - What do plants and trees need to grow healthily? How do we make the most of the materials around us? Why is it important to keep our bodies healthy? Why do animals choose the habitats they have?

Reading Challenge


The class are all completing their reading challenge. Every time they read 10 times with an adult they move around the dolphins reading challenge. When they reach 40 reads, they can choose a brand new book to keep from Mrs Dainty!


A list of example questions can be found below which help to greater develop children's understanding when reading.


WHISPER - Anonymous Reporting Tool


Sometimes it is really hard to tell an adult if you feel like you are being bullied. That is why we have subscribed to WHISPER. It is an anonymous reporting tool which allows you or your child to report any incidents of bullying and cyber bullying in confidence.


Click on the web link below to fill in a report. It will then be emailed to Miss Hughes (Online Safety Coordinator). Messages are checked as often as possible. In order to resolve issues effectively and promptly, please include your name. This will be kept in the strictest of confidence.


If you have any concerns or worries about your child regarding online safety and would like further advice, please contact Miss Hughes or Mr Lyons, the school's online safety co-ordinators or speak to Mrs Dainty, Headteacher.
