Dear Parents/ Carers of Purple Class pupils,
Welcome to Autumn term 2018 in Purple Class. Our class logo is purple rain. I am Jenny, the Class Teacher and I work Wednesday to Friday. Marcia will be the Teacher on Monday and Tuesday. The other members of the team are Gemma, Caroline, Zelda, Marylin, Becca, and Christine
Our physical days are: Wednesday –PE, Thursday–Dance, Friday–Swimming
Please send in swimming trunks/costume, towel, as well as a swim nappy/pad if needed. Please send in a PE kit (e.g. jogging bottoms, shorts and t-shirts) for PE/Dance days. Keeping these in school would be preferable to ensure all children swim regularly and get changed for Physical sessions, practising independence skills. Also please can you send in a complete change of clothes for your child, just in case we need to change them, including a vest and socks. This can be put in their school bag or in a labelled carrier bag that can be kept in school. Thank you.
This first half term our Themed Curriculum (Art, DT, Science, History and Georgraphy) will be based on ‘Making things work’. In PSHE our emphasis this term is to talk about emotions and moods. In RE we are going to look at characteristics of the seasons. The class will be developing their physical skills in P.E. through the topic Gymnastics.
It would be very useful if you would use the home/school book to write to us about anything significant that we may need to know, for example s/he slept badly, didn’t eat breakfast, has something in their bag to show. The chat books can be used to tell us about any lovely events, such as going to the park or zoo.
We look forward to working with you and your child this year.
From Jenny and the Purple Class Team
