Purple class is an upper Key Stage 1 class following the Early Years philosophy of a cross-curricular learning through play approach to teach and extend foundation skills to prepare these children for adulthood. 

Each day consists of fun, practical, everyday activities to increase the children’s independence, confidence, self-esteem, social interaction and communication skills.  Alongside this work-based tasks develop numeracy and literacy skills that can be extended into real-life situations like cooking, shopping and letter writing. 

By promoting a love of learning the staff help the children develop their imagination, investigation and problem solving skills so that they can learn about the world around them and their role within class, the school, family and local community.
