Purple Class

Welcome to Purple Class!

In Purple Class there are 10 children, 7 boys and 3 girls.

We have a teacher and 4 assistants to help us learn.

We use symbols, Makaton, high tech AAC devices and our voices to communicate and visual timetables to support us during the day.

Purple Class - Autumn Timetable 2018

Our Theme - Television

For the second half of the Autumn and the first half of the Spring term our theme is "Television". 

We will look at many different types of TV programmes, including those made for children and for adults.

Initially we will work on finding out what TV programmes the class find most interesting. The children will talk about what they like and don't like and maybe even have a vote and count the results.

We will have a go at making our own versions of favourite programmes and when we are happy with them we will video them. After this we can watch our recordings and maybe try to edit them and add music or narration. 

We can also film our everyday activities and make a documentary style programme - "A day in the life of Purple class".

As well as live action video we will try to make our own cartoons; by drawing, stop frame animation and maybe even using ICT to generate pictures.

Other activities that we could potentially film the class doing and make into TV are; Cooking (Brooklands Bake Off!), Gardening, The (Brooklands) News, Game shows and maybe even our sporting exploits …  

Purple Class: Autumn term: Planner for Habitats

Home Learning Suggestions

Most families have a television and most children like to watch television so there is a lot of scope for this theme at home! Below are some home learning suggestions ...

  • Ask your child what their favourite programmes are. Why do they like them? Who are their favourite characters? What could the programme makers do better? 
  • Try watching some types of programmes that you wouldn't normally with your child. You might be surprised what they enjoy. If they do like something unusual then do let us know!
  • If you have a tablet or camera you could always try to make your own TV show by doing some video recording. Most tablets and cameras will take video as well as still pictures. 
  • You could film some everyday activities or set up something unusual with toys as props. 
  • There are apps available free which will allow simple editing of video and adding music or titles - why not try these if you are ICT minded. 
  • You can also get apps that allow you to make your own simple cartoon programmes, again though even those aimed at children can be quite complex. 
  • Many children's TV programmes (especially those on the BBC) have games and apps associated with them.

Television - Cooking Scooby Doo Snacks. Our TV cooking this week was inspired by the enormous sandwiches seen on Scooby Doo!

Television - Superheroes. We tried creating superheroes for a TV programme. We used the computer, playdoh and cutting and sticking to represent our heroes and their powers.

Spooky - On "spooky" day the 31st October we tried some different spooky activities in class. Lots of the children dressed up as their favourite spooky characters. We also tried some traditional apple bobbing (harder than it looks), made spooky spiderweb decorations with glitter and glue and dressed up as mummys.

Habitats —Plant habitats. Purple class learnt about plant habitats by planting bulbs. We learnt that the plant's food comes from the sun and the soil and that their water comes from the rain or when we water them.

Harvest Festival - We visited the church to celebrate harvest festival on Friday afternoon. We took donations of food to give to the food bank at the church and also pictures of produce that we had made earlier in the week. There was singing and celebration and everyone enjoyed the event. Apologies for the poor quality of the pictures but it wasn't very bright in the church and our camera isn't good with low light levels!

PE - Gymnastics. Our PE focus for this term is gymnastics. We have been practicing balances for a couple of weeks and this week we decided to make it more challenging by asking the children to balance on different apparatus. As you can see everyone tried hard and succeeded in the end!
