Welcome to Purple Class!


Hello everyone and welcome back to the start of a new school year!

We are Purple class and we are in Year 2. There are currently 22 children in our class. I am Mr. Chase and our LSAs are Mrs. Brown and Miss. Smith.

This term we will be learning about the Amazon rainforest and will become more familiar with the animals and wildlife that can be found there. We will learn about food chains, human and physical geographical features, different habitats and we will use and make maps. For more details please see the topic grid pdf document. We will be visiting Colchester Zoo on the 10th of October as part of our learning on rainforest animals and the Amazon.

In Year 2 the P.E. days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure that your P.E. bag is in school with a white t-shirt, red shorts and plimsolls or trainers. It is also useful to have tracksuit trousers/jogging bottoms for when the weather gets colder.

Please continue to check Arbor for any communications and updates on what’s happening in school as well as any useful homework links. If you have any questions about anything please feel free to speak to me before or after school. You can also send an email to the following address and I will do my best to respond:

Thanks for reading!

Mr. Chase and Purple class
