Purple Class

Our Purple class teacher is Mrs Johnsen. We also work alongside two support staff; Miss Donnachie and Miss Jull. We have lots of fun in Purple and get up to lots of interesting things. We learn lots of exciting things in our lessons both inside and outside of the classroom. We have four lessons a day where we cover a wide range of subjects which include English/RWI, Maths, Computing and Topic. The children are encouraged to develop their confidence and independence as they prepare themselves for the transition into Secondary.

In Purple we work together to earn our Maplepoints by completing work, being kind to others and for trying our best in all we do.  As a staff team, we work closely together to support each child with their individual needs including personalised timetables and reward schemes. At break and lunchtime, you might see us playing football on the Astro turf, on the tyres, tag on Concrete area or just simply climbing around on the climbing frame. In Purple we also get the opportunity to go out of school and do fun activities like Forest school and Swimming!
