Purple Class

Happy New Year!

Hello Purple Class...we are now in 2019, although I wonder how long it will take me not to put 2018 on the board...you'll have to help me out!

I really hope you have had a great break so far. Thank you so much for your wonderful and generous gifts for Christmas. Miss Arscott, Mrs Moran and I are very grateful, so thank you.

Peggy and Bertie were very pleased with their carrots as an early treat and on Christmas day opened their pine cone garland (it's been munched a bit), their sunflower seed gingerbread man (only one leg was left by lunchtime) and their tasty hay (a big hit too). I have sent the card you made to the rescue centre where we got Bertie from and I'm sure they will be very pleased to hear how he is getting on. The guineas have developed a new bad habit - tipping the bowl upside down. I have tried explaining to them that it's not a good plan as they then can't get to the food, but they didn't seem to take that in. They haven't done it today...yet.

When I see you all on Monday, we will begin our topic of 'Best Books'. Please have a think about what your favourite book is and if you have it, bring it in to show. You'll need to be able to explain a little bit about the book and what makes it your 'best book'. I'm sure we'll have a good variety. I've got some of my favourites to share too. Peggy and Bertie have their favourite book at school already - they're trying to get top marks - teacher's pets :)

See you soon.

Hello Purple

Hello Purple Class,

I hope you are all well and have had a lovely week's break from school. You were so brilliant in your class assembly on the last day of term, I'm sure you've had a well deserved rest. 

When we come back to school, we are going to learn about Bonfire Night and Remembrance Day as these are both happening in the first week. So if you'd like to do some homework next week, perhaps you could find out if there are any stories to tell about the World Wars in your family. Maybe there was a relative that took part. Maybe you have a few photos. You can share what you find out in class.

The following week we will start our 'Special Places' topic and I'll be planning lots of different home learning opportunities for you.

See you on Monday

Miss K, Mabel and Peggy :)

A good first week

Hello Purple Class,

I just wanted to write you a little well done letter as you all did brilliantly settling in to the new classroom and new lessons. I was particularly impressed with your history learning this week and you interpreted many different historical sources to find out what life was like back in the Victorian era. It won't be long before mums, dads and visitors will get a little look at your fabulous learning on Open Evening.

Don't forget the Victorian visit later this term too. I have been to have a sneaky look and plan some great learning for you and I think you'll love it. It would be really lovely if we could travel back in time and dress up as real Victorians too. It will make the day even more exciting. Have a think about a simple costume you might wear. Perhaps you could do a little bit of research with a grown up to find out more.

On Friday you will have brought home a class newsletter and homework sheet. I wrote the Forest School days on there and lots of other helpful information too. Why not have a try at a homework activity this weekend? You can hand in your green homework book on Monday.

That's all for now,

Miss Kuriger, Mabel and Peggy
