Welcome to Purple Class, Year 2!
Your class teacher is Miss Saliba
Purple class star of the week!
As we cannot do our star of the week at school, I will be picking a star of the week each week based on all the effort and hard work that I can see in your purple mash work. Make sure you come and check every Friday to see if it is you!
Star of the week: Week 2
"This week I am picking a boy who has made an exceptional effort in completing all the work set this week. He has produced a great weather report. He also made me smile with his funny meme from our online circle time email! Well done Adam you have been a star this week!"
Star of the week: Week 1
"This week I am picking Tianne for her amazing non fiction text about Jamaica! She used amazing sentence starters and included so many interesting facts in her non fiction text! Well done Tianne, you're a star!"
Oliver Jeffers, author of Lost and Found and The Day the Crayons Quit reads a story every day - tune in at 6pm or catch up anytime!

Purple class's assembly
Thank you all for coming to watch Purple class's assembly! The children took such an interest in the world and learning about their friends cultures that we decided to celebrate it in our assembly.
Children in need
Thank you for dressing your children in pyjamas. We raised a great amount of money and had so much fun!
Marmalade Sandwiches for harvest
For harvest, Purple class made marmalade sandwiches to share out just like Paddington! We used two slices of bread, buttered each slide and then spread some marmalade to make our sandwiches.
We think Paddington Bear would approve!
Our topic this term in London. We have learnt about Paddington and his journey around London ready for our London trip in November. The children have written their own stories about Paddingtons journey from Peru to London and have written their own adventures around London. Purple class know of lots of landmarks such as Big Ben, the London Eye, Tower Bridge, the river Thames, St Pauls Cathedral and many more!
This term, Purple class have practiced their place value using Numicon and Dienes.
