Purple Class
Spring Term 2018 


Welcome to Purple Class

Purple Class consists of 28 hardworking, keen-to-learn children.  Miss. Young is the class teacher with help from Mrs Freeman who is our super Teaching Assistant.

Our topic this half-term is...
'To the rescue!'


Learning Journey


This term our Learning Journey has a History focus, but English, Maths, Science, Geography, Art, DT and Music will all link together to create an exciting, memorable learning experience.


Our learning will focus on Superheroes, both real-life and fictional heroes. We will be exploring heroes from the past learning all about Florence Nightingale. Purple class will be learning about everyday heroes who continue to help us daily. In Science, we will focus on everyday materials and then learn all about Scientists and their inventions.


Please read with your child as often as possible (every day if you can).  Research shows that children who read at home make better progress with their reading generally. They will change their books once a week and will bring home 2/3 books for you to share with your child.  Please encourage your child to bring their reading bag to school every day.
Some tips for reading at home:

Discuss the story and ask your child lots of questions to check they have understood what they have read. Act out the story or make up different endings. Discuss the characters and their feelings at different times in the story. Talk about the story and relate it to your child’s experiences if possible.




This term we have PE sessions on Tuesday and Friday afternoons but please ensure that PE kits are in school at all times. We will be following the Real PE scheme.


Home Learning


Every Friday your child will be given spellings to learn and practice to then be tested for the following Friday. Your child also has a 'Phonics workout' book where are they are to complete the weekly set pages.

Your child will also have a log in to Doodle Maths, where they can complete a 'daily five.'

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you need any further information. 
Email is often the most efficient method:


We look forward to a great Spring Term!
