Purple learning



Are you a purple learner?


At the start of term we began to learn what ‘Purple learners’ were and how we can become brilliant learners. The children were encouraged to get on the purple learning bus. The purple bus is a challenge area in which a learner can succeed and experience real achievement if s/he has a great attitude and puts in lots of effort. There will be 2 daily purple learner awards, so look out for your child taking it home.
