Welcome to Purple Class!
There are 10 children in Purple Class: 6 boys and 4 girls. We have a teacher and 3 assistants to help us learn.
Purple class is very lively, active and sociable. We have lots of fun and work very hard on our targets each day. We work at quite a fast pace, so we might come home tired out from our busy day.
We use signs and symbols to help us communicate and visual support is helpful for learning, cues for appropriate behaviour and remembering information. We are a very chatty group and we love to talk to everyone about our work and other interests! Purple class children are very caring and like to help each other throughout the day.
Some of us go swimming at the local leisure centre every week and some of us swim in the pool at school. We have also enjoyed going to Tennis every week and are learning some great tennis skills.
Our theme - "Community"
Purple class will be working on a range of activities to do with the topic "Community".
We will write stories, poems, cards and of course read books about people who help us in the community. We will hopefully have a visit from the police and visit the Fire-station.
As part of our topic work session, we hope to go out each week to a variety of places in the community like the library, cafes, post office to post our letters home and of course we will test out local parks. We will also hope to go to our local nursing home and spend an afternoon singing with them which is a great community link. We will bring back items from walks and make collages, and most of all Purple class will develop social skills when communicating with people in our local community.
For a better idea of the many activities that we will be following please look at our class planner, there is a link for it below ...
