We are a Purple Mash School!

Purple Mash is a fantastic online tool to support your child's learning across the curriculum at home.

Children will be set 2Do tasks that they can complete. This children can also share their learning to a class display board for the teacher and their friends to view.

Children should check daily for new activities or any updates.

Don't forget to use the Numbots     and TimesTable RockStars (TTRS)  apps to support your maths learning at home. 

Your child will have logins (located inside reading record), so they can continue their learning anywhere and anytime.
