'Where everyone matters and every day counts'

Welcome to Purple Class!


Hello everyone and welcome back for the summer term!

We are Purple class and we are in Year 2. There are currently 19 children in our class. Our teacher is Mr Chase and our LSA is Mrs. Milton.

This term our theme is ‘Which creatures might live in this habitat, and why?’ We will be learning about the animals and plants that can be found in different habitats locally and around the world. For more details please see the block 3 topic grid document. We will also be using the film ‘A Turtle’s Tale’ to help inspire us when we write.

The end of Key Stage 1 SATs assessments for year 2 pupils will begin on the 16th May. This will include arithmetic, reasoning and reading papers. Please help us to do our best by making sure we get a good night’s sleep and have breakfast each morning.

Swimming lessons will begin on Thursday 5th May at First Strokes in Stanway. The final swimming session is on the 14th of July. We will leave school at 12.30 and will return before home time. We will need to bring a swimming cap, goggles, sensible swimwear (no baggy shorts), a towel and a named bag. Please don’t bring armbands.

Please continue to check our class homepage and homework link pages on dB Primary for weekly activities and teaching videos. If you have any questions about anything please feel free to speak to Mr. Chase before or after school. You can also send an email to

Mr Chase and Purple class

The children are welcome to choose as many of the homework activities from the Year 2 Homework Grid which can be found as an attachment on the school website or on the class page on DB Primary. Please continue to upload any work, activities and achievements from home for us to see onto their individual blog pages on DB Primary. The children enjoy having the opportunity to share and discuss what they have done at home with their friends in class. Please practice writing the Year 2 Common Exception words (listed on our Homework Grid), focusing not only on spelling but also hand writing and letter formation if applicable.

Websites such as and are very helpful for developing children’s understanding and confidence in Maths. Phonics Play is a useful site for all things linked with letters and sounds.
