Purple Class

Welcome to Purple Class!

In Year 2 we love to learn by exploring, talking, being active and creative whilst developing independent working skills. This year we will have lots of fun learning new information and skills both indoors and outside. We cover a variety of topics through the year using the National Curriculum and ideas from the children. Interesting trips and visitors into school are an important part of making learning enjoyable. We value family input in our learning, so if you feel you could contribute to our topics please let us know.

Every term we have a homework grid which can be completed at your own pace throughout the term. Please ensure you have completed all the tasks by the last week of the term when we have a homework sharing session. Children have the opportunity to change their books on a daily basis and can gain points for our weekly reading challenge. Please try and read every night as reading is such an important part of school life.

Mrs Ingrid Pagett is the Teaching Assistant in Year Two and teaches Music and PSHE once a week. The children also get weekly PE lessons taught by Sports Heroes.

I am looking forward to a fantastic year.

Mrs Victoria Clark
