Welcome to Purple Class!

Our teacher is called Jane

and our teaching assistants are called Pam, Sandra and Emily.


Here you will find information about what we are learning in class and the many exciting events that are coming up throughout the year. We will also use this page to share photographs and videos of your child's learning, undergoing interesting lessons, special activities or showing examples of your child's work. In addition to support your child's learning at home, we will share useful websites where we can all work together with your child and have fun!
