Purple Class
Spring term 2020


Welcome to Purple Class!

Purple Class consists of 25 hardworking, keen-to-learn children.  Miss. Young is the class teacher with help from our super teaching assistants Mrs. Freeman and Mrs. Goodchap.

Our topic this term is...

To the rescue!


Learning Journey


We are all very excited for the new term. We are beginning our topic learning all about the Great Fire of London. We will be looking in-depth about how we think the fire started, the events of the Great Fire and why the fire spread so quickly, how did people attempt to put the fire out and the consequences of the Great Fire.  In addition to this, we will look at modern day fire safety. Following on from this, we will be looking at some real life superheroes from the past such as Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole, we will study how hospital conditions improved. This will tie in nicely with our Science where we will be looking at keeping ourselves healthy. Also this term we have our class showcase (Thursday 30th January) and our class assembly (31st March).


Please check out our Class Gallery page to see what we have been up to in the classroom.

Below we have developed our own knowledge organisers to support the delivery of our curriculum. Each organiser is to help children recall the knowledge and a list of technical vocabulary with definitions.


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 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. Check out the information below about reading and phonics at Ashperton below.




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

This term we will always be swimming on a Friday afternoon, don't forget swimming kits.


Home Learning


Every Friday your child will be given spellings to learn and practice to then be tested for the following Friday. Please check out the homework page below for the weekly spellings list. Your child also has a 'Phonics workout' book where are they are to complete the weekly set pages. These pages are set on a Friday and returned to school on a Thursday.

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!
