Welcome to Purple Class!
I am Mrs. Taylor the Purple Class teacher. I work alongside Mrs. Milton, Miss. Clarke and Miss. Ollie who are Learning Support Assistants.
This term our learning is based around the question ‘What happens to objects when we have finished with them?’
This is a science based block of work. We will be developing scientific thinking through experiments around the topic of materials. It all starts with our trip to Firstsite gallery in Colchester. We will be looking at and handling some of Anthony Gormley pieces in Field for The British Isles.
The reading challenge will continue and you can collect certificates as you go along. Just read books at home and sign your home school book.
Please bring your book bag everyday as we have lots of reading helpers who would love to read with you. You also need it to take home letters and things that you’ve made at school. For more information on our topic please see the topic web for this term which goes into more detail regarding some of the learning planned for this term.
We have PE twice a week but please make sure you have your PE kit with you everyday as we have lots of extra activities planned. Please make sure that you are not wearing jewellery that can catch on the apparatus. Swimming for Year 2 starts on Wednesday 29th April. There will be details given out before the sessions start.
Forest School is every fortnight and you can have much more fun if you have a change of clothes. You will need warm and waterproof clothes as well as sturdy shoes or trainers.
I will be in the playground with Mrs. Milton and Miss. Ollie at the end of each day. If there is anything you need to know please come and ask us.
Mrs. Taylor, Mrs. Milton and Miss. Ollie
