Purple Class

Welcome Back Purple Class

Hello Purple Class,

We hope you've had a fantastic summer holiday. We have been very busy getting Purple Class ready and we have lots of new things to play and learn with. We are really excited that you will all be back together again and hopefully there will be no butterflies about meeting your new teacher as you already know Mrs James really well.

When we return to school, our new topic will be the Bronze Age and Iron Age as we move through time in Britain’s history. We cannot wait for this as we really enjoyed our Stone Age topic together. On Thursday, please bring with you: your water bottle, a healthy snack or 30p to buy one, your wellies for our new garden, bookbags can return to school, your named PE will need to be in school by Wednesday 9th September at the latest and finally the most important thing to bring with you is your smile.

We look forward to hearing about your summer adventures and beginning your Year 2 one with you. Be sure to get a good night sleep and we’ll see you on Thursday 3rd September. (Please refer to the staggered start times sent out by Mrs Moss)

Lots of Love,

Mrs James, Mrs Moran, Miss Chamberlain and Mrs Cain x

Additional trip information

Your child will bring a trip letter home today but in addition to the information on the letter:

  • If your child would like to come dressed up as a Victorian for the trip, they are most welcome to but they will still need to wear sensible shoes and have a waterproof coat. 
  • Please can all children (including those who are having a Blackwell Kitchen dinner) bring a small rucksack so that they can carry their lunch, snack and drink with them during the day.

Many thanks

Happy break Purple

Hello Purple Class,

I hope you are all having a good week so far. We did so much learning for our Best Books and Christianity topics last half term, that I bet you were in much need of a good rest. I loved our visit to the cathedral, and your writing about it at the end of last week showed me that you did too!

I know some of you are away this week - I hope you have some good weather, although it's nice and sunny at school here at the moment anyway. The guineas are both fine at my house, enjoying a lie in as usual and very loud when it gets close to supper time. Nothing new there then.

I am busy getting some learning ready for next term for you all. We are going to have a new history topic for the afternoons - the Anglo Saxons. I'm sure you'll find it fascinating. If you would like to do a little bit of research, then the BBC website has some good information as a starting point - https://www.bbc.com/bitesize/articles/zq2m6sg 

Keep up the reading and mental maths facts - halves and doubles to double 20 and knowing the multiplication and division facts for the 2s, 5s, and 10s tables is a good place to start.

See you all soon,

Miss K (Peggy and Bertie) :)

New topic

Hello Purple Class,

I just wanted to say well done for the fantastic book afternoon you hosted for Red Class today. You were able to share your stories, help the younger children develop new skills and of course have fun!

Our next topic will be Christianity and we look forward to learning stories, beliefs and practices. If you would like to do some homework over the next couple of weeks, you could do some research to find out more about this religion or perhaps visit a Christian place of worship yourself to see just what it is like.

Please continue to practise your reading and mental maths facts. Doubles and halves to double 20 and counting on and back in 3s would be a great place to start.

See you on Monday - with all your hats, scarves and gloves labelled with your names! :)

From Miss K, Peggy and Bertie (both currently eyeing me up with their feet on the bowl waiting for supper)
