Our new Purple Class pupils are settling in very well at Turney School. The transition to new year groups ahead of the start of the school year in September helps the pupils to have a little more time to get familiar with the adults and new surroundings. In Purple Class we have been making this move easier with a number of games, as well as plenty of reading of our favourite books.
The Enormous Turnip has proven to be a very popular story so far in Purple Class. The pupils have loved the story of how all the adults and animals at the farm had to work together in order to pull out the enormous turnip from the ground. We have been acting out the scenes, and playing along with our class friends. We have also started to read The Gingerbread, another book that is a great favourite in Purple Class.
