Purple Class

Welcome to Purple Class!

There are 11 children in Purple Class: 6 boys and 5 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. 

2nd half Spring Timetable

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 ...

Purple Class: Spring term: Planner for School

23/3/18 Growing and Changing: This week we made Mr Potato heads and planted some cress seeds. We have been watering them and watching them grow. We also planted beans and the children were mesmerized by some videos of how beans grow. Some noted that they grow slower in the dark than in the light!

15/3/18 In shape space and measure we are concentrating on different shapes. Some children are learning to stack cups and build up to 3 blocks, other children are feeling shapes and discussing their properties. They draw around simple shapes eg, square, circle and triangle and make shape pictures. In ICT, some children are learning to make shape patterns and others have to spot the odd constructed shapes out.

8/3/18 Last week some children enjoyed being out in the snow. They have also been working on using the apparatus in the hall. Climbing up the ladder, through the bars and down the slide. They also balanced in different ways on benches and stepped up or down onto different platforms. They also had to jump off a small platform with a safe landing.

23/2/18 In writing, the children practised holding different writing implements with froggy fingers. They practise writing numbers with paint and letters with crayon. We are also using messy activities like shaving foam to make a variety of patterns

Purple Class has been playing with lots of different toys. We have built train tracks and explored jungle toys amongst others

Purple Class have been playing tennis both indoor and outdoor
