We had fun making Christingles. We got some oranges and put a red ribbon around them. Then we picked up sweets with cocktail sticks. Then we poked these into the oranges. We then made a hole for a candle. We put the candle in and then we use a match (with Sarah's help) to light the candles.
In Science we have been exploring light. We used torches to find jewels in the dark. We looked through kaleidoscopes and put on sunglasses. We used mirrors to make our own kaleidoscope.
We have been looking at the tradition of Halloween. We got a pumpkin and everyone helped scoop out the inside and then Sarah carved a face in it. Then some children helped light candles to put inside.
We then use coloured tissue paper to try and make our own pumpkin and drew faces on them with coloured pens.

We had a lovely trip to the recycling centre to see what happens to our rubbish.
We have been busy looking at things made from plastic and how we can recycle them. We collected empty plastic milk cartons and then we turned them into elephants :)
Purple class is made up of 8 boys and 1 girl . Sarah is the teacher, Shirley the TA4 and Josh, Dawn and Liz support in the class. We look forward to sharing with you photos and information about the exciting things we have been doing in our class. This week we introduced our topic for the half term. It is called What a Load of Junk and we made some binoculars and went around the school grounds looking for rubbish to put in the bin.
