The staff in Purple Class are:

Welcome to the Purple Class page, here you will find updates of what we have been up to in class and some useful links.




Remember our safety rules whilst learning online and always check anything you are unsure about. If anything makes you feel unsure, don't forget STOP! BLOCK! TELL!


Start of the day

To ensure a smooth transition at the beginning of the day there will be a member of staff on the door to address any concerns. If you would like to speak to a member of staff at the end of the day please wait until all the children have been collected to ensure all children are delivered to parents safely. If you feel you would like to make an appointment to speak to Mrs Smith, please do so at the school office.




Homework will be handed out every Friday and collected in the following Thursday.  There will be one English and one Maths piece of Homework a week.



Purple Class Homework rules


  • Always try your best.
  • Ask your parents for help only when you need it.
  • If you are unsure or need more help, please ask a teacher in school.
  • Use a pencil or a black pen to do your best handwriting.
  • Hand in your homework book every Thursday morning.
  • Your homework book is your responsibility, not your parents.
  • If homework isn’t handed in on the Thursday, you will miss a break time.


Reading books


We aim to check reading books every day, whether your child has read their book or not, please bring it in so we can read with them in school.





Children are to come into school, in their PE kits on Thursdays for PE.   PE kits consist of a white top, black pants or shorts and trainers.  Please also provide a coat or a school jumper as we will be trying to have our PE lessons outside as much as possible.





Please ensure all items of uniform, coats and bags have names in them.




Library Books


Each child in Purple Class will be taken to our school library on a Tuesday and will able to choose a book to keep in their tray.

The Year 2's will be doing their SATs in the middle of May. The children will be tested on their Maths and English skills. Please be reassured that we deliver these tests in such a way as to ensure it is not stressful for the children; if you have any questions please ask.
