Hello from Mrs Munro and Mrs Roberts.

Please take a look at all the interesting subjects we learn about in Purple class.

We have really enjoyed the topic 'I wanna be in a band'. We listened and appraised the music of Queen, Status Quo, Deep Purple, The Beatles, Chuck Berry... The children have loved the music and we have had lots of parents telling us that they have shared this with them at home.

A visit from Northumberland Zoo to reinforce our work on livings things and their habitats. We had two invertebrates and two reptiles to discuss and hold (if we wanted)!

HISTORY: Work in class today was baout the scientist Isaac Newton. We tried one of his experiments and tried to make white light from spinning our home made colour wheels really fast.

Science w.c. 13th January, children went outside to see what micro habitats they could find and what lives there. Under logs leaves and on rocks, they found snails, woodlice, worms, slugs and moss. They recorded what the habitat was like (e.g. damp, dark..).

This term in ART we are looking at the skills involved in PAINTING. We looked at different sorts of paints today and how we can use both thick and thin paints to create different tones.

Spring 1 Science is about Living Things and their Habitats. First lesson was deciding whether something was dead, living or never been alive. Children went outside to record everything they could see. In the classroom, they used this information to classify it into the three headings.

Week 4: SCIENCE:We have been exploring the term 'absorbtion'. What does it mean? Which materials absorb water the best? We have completed lots of different investigations.Take a look at our photographs.

Week 4 - Our Newcastle Academy Sports Leader showed the children the importance of quick direction turning so not to get 'caught' in a game. He also got children to practise both overarm and underarm throws. They had to do a catching challenge with clapping, remembering also to catch and bring the beanbag into their body to make sure it wasn't dropped.

Week 5 - Making a controlled drawing from a different angle. We looked very closely at the detail in the natural objects and drew what we saw.

Week 5 English - In groups, children wrote sentences about why "Not Now Bernard!" was their favourite book or "Oscar Got the Blame". Each "camp" had to convince me which was best!

Here are some of the sentences the children wrote about "Not Now Bernard!" and "Oscar Got the Blame".

Purple class are loving Newcastle United Football Club coming in every week to do P.E. Here they are doing some warm up games, some races and practicing some catching and throwing skills!

Outside Learning - linked to Science. A walk looking for signs of AUTUMN.

In ART this term we are exploring 'DRAWING'. The children listened to Mrs Roberts word and drew a line in response.

Hello from Mrs Munro, Mrs Roberts and Mrs Hawkes.

Please take a look at all the interesting subjects we learn about in Purple class.

Please click on the 'Archive - Class Pages 2017-2018' link below to see the start of the year information you will need for PURPLE CLASS.

Rocket Fund

Through the organisation Rocket Fund, we are trying to raise money to buy exciting and innovative IT equipment for our school. As ICT coordinator, I want to provide children with technology that is fun, interactive and different to iPads and computers, which most children have access to either through school or home. Any support or publicity is greatly appreciated, this can be done via word of mouth or any social media outlets.

Please have a look at our Rocket Fund page below.

https://rocket.fund/p/morpethallsaints/

**PLEASE ask a member of staff if you are unsure of any information given out from class / school.  Any homework given has a date that it is due back into school.  Outside Learning happens every other Thursday.  In a school term we always start in Week 2.  Children will need wellington boots on their pegs.  We thank you for your co-operation and appreciate your help if you feel information is not clear.

Science week has been lots of fun. My Naylor has been in showing some brilliantly engineered machines. In the classroom we have looked at how static electricity works with balloons and tissue paper newts! Some tried it on their hair too!

Science week this week has included a treat of being able to use some Virtual Reality headsets to go up into space and explore some planets. We all learnt lots of facts and were very excited about looking in space. You will have to ask your children what we saw though, as we haven't got any photos of what we were all looking at!

Also in Science week we have looked at the way the colours & sugar from the skittles dissolve in warm water, diffusing through the water to form a pretty pattern.

Proctor and Gamble kindly visited us this week. Children got to wear lab coats and feel like real scientists, as they were shown how water can be cleaned to help those in places that don't have a fresh supply out of a tap like us.
