Welcome to Purple Class!



Happy new year everyone and welcome back to school for the spring term. We are Purple class and we are in Year 2. There are currently 22 children in our class. Our teacher is Mr. Chase and our LSAs are Mrs. Brown and Miss. Smith.

This term we will be learning about the Roman period of history as we ask ‘What did the Romans do for us?’ We will become more familiar with Roman achievements, homes, the destruction of Pompeii due to the Vesuvius eruption, Boudicca’s revolt, food, weapons and beliefs. In Science we will be comparing materials and learning about the properties of materials and their suitability for different products and purposes in real life. We will be carrying out a wide range of experiments in class as we test different materials for their strength, waterproofing and other properties.

Our 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 now that the weather is colder.

Please continue to read the fortnightly emails that have optional homework links and activities to explore. 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

Thanks for reading!

Mr. Chase and Purple Class
