Purple Class

Welcome to Purple Class! We are a Year 1 class of very hardworking, keen-to-learn children. Mrs. Sallis (Monday-Thursday) and Mrs. Jackson (Friday) are our class teachers with support from Miss. Powell and Mrs. Westwood.

Summer 2022

Our learning journey is: Once Upon a Time...


Learning Journey Overview: 

Our topic this term is 'Once Upon a Time...'. In the first half of term we will be focusing on Geography and developing our fieldwork and observational skills. We will be considering if our school is a bee friendly environment and how we can improve this. We will be looking at how plants thrive in different environments.

The second half of term, we will be focusing on developing our skills in History. We will be learning all about Castles, what the different parts of the castles are and how they are used. We will be learning all about the different jobs inside a castle. We are very much looking forward to our class trip to visit a local castle, Goodrich castle to further our knowledge and understanding.



This term in Science we will be continuing learning about the seasons of Spring and Summer. Throughout the Summer term we will be learning all about Plants in Science, naming the parts of plant and how plants grow. We will also be learning about names of different kinds of plants and trees.


At Home Reading:

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. Please ensure that children bring their reading books and reading diaries in to school everyday. 


*Tips for reading at home- talk about 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. Please look at the information below about reading and phonics at Ashperton.



We have PE sessions on Monday (outside) but please ensure that PE kits are in school at all times.


Forest School:

We have Forest School on a Friday with Mrs. Jackson please ensure you bring in Forest School kit.


Home Learning:

Every Friday your child will be set spellings on Seesaw based on the Key Stage 1 common exception words and will be tested the following Friday.

Your child also has weekly Phonics/ Maths  home learning that needs to be completed and handed in every Friday please. Your child has a log in to Doodle Maths, where they can complete a 'daily five'. 

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need any further information. 


Many thanks, 


Mrs. Sallis and Mrs. Jackson
