Welcome to Purple Class!
Hello and welcome to Purple class, our teachers are Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. Saunders and we have Mrs. Milton and Mrs. Fisher as our class LSA’s. We hope you are as excited as we are about the new Block.
For Block 2, we will be exploring the question: ‘How do we find out about the past if we can’t talk to people?’
We will be going back in time to learn all about the famous explorer Scot of the Antarctic and his expeditions to reach the South Pole. We will be learning about animals that inhabit both poles and the adaptations that they have had to make to survive extreme weather conditions. Please see the attached Topic Grid to find out more.
In Year 2, we run a reading challenge, where we encourage your child to read to you three times a week. Each week we will check their reading diaries and award certificates to the children who have done this. Please do sign your child's reading diary so they can collect their reward.
Please bring your book bag everyday as we read every day in school. You also need it to take home letters and things that you’ve made at school.
We have PE twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday, please make sure that your child wears their kit to school on these days. This term we will be having PE outside, so please ensure your child has a warm tracksuit to wear and comfortable shoes. If your child wears laces, please can you make sure that they can do these up themselves. Please make sure that your child is not wearing jewellery.
We are really looking forward to launching into our new Block with the children and becoming Historians! Please keep logging into dB Primary to see the updated class page and assigned tasks. Homework can be uploaded onto dBPrimary under the ‘My Work’ section on your child’s profile. Alternatively, you can e-mail it to us using our dB Primary e-mail addresses.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to sharing our learning with you,
Mrs. Taylor, Mrs. Saunders, Mrs. Milton and Mrs. Fisher
