Welcome to Year 1/2 Purple Base
Miss Hemsley and Mrs Eason welcome you to Year 1 and 2 in Purple Base!
Welcome to our class page, where you will find all the useful information that you will need during your time in our class.
If there is any information that you can't find on our class page please get in touch with the school office by email and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Our day starts at 8.40am when our door will be open for children to come in until 8.50am. Our day ends at 3.10pm.
Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday. Children need to come to school in their PE kit which is trainers, black shorts/bottoms, a white t-shirt and black zip up jacket. Please make sure your child can remove their own earrings or remove these prior to PE on these days, Thanks.
Home work is daily reading in year one and 2. Please make sure you write in your child’s reading record once you have read with them. The aim is to read a minimum of 5 times in a week. For 5 to 10 minutes per time. This will greatly help your child build fluency in reading. Our book change over day is Monday where children in year 1 and 2 will receive a new book if they have brought their old book back.
As well as regular reading we hand out half termly homework projects based upon the upcoming focus in class.
In half term six, we will be reading 'The Tin Forest'
Take a look at our most recent learning experiences...
In science we have enjoyed learning about the seasons and what the weather can be like in different seasons and the changing we can see every day. We became weather watchers and talked about what we would wear do and feel in all weathers and then even made our own fake snow to see which was the best and our own wind socks to test how windy it was during our time in school.
