We subscribe to Purple Mash, which is a creative educational website for children. Purple Mash is a cross-curricular resource covering art to science and all subjects in between. Your child can access Purple Mash from home on a laptop, desktop or a tablet. Purple Mash is a safe environment that does not require any downloading or allow interaction with people online and children cannot make any financial transactions. We will be encouraging the children to continue their learning at home and Purple Mash is a great resource for this. Your child will be taught how to use Purple Mash in school and will be able to use it without supervision, but you may want to take a few minutes to explore it yourself so that you can help them with their work.
You will find your child’s purple Mash login card attached to this letter. Using the following link your child will be able to login to their account https://www.purplemash.com/sch/ . Once logged in they will be able access their 2Do’s.
They will be able to click on any of the 2Dos, these are activities set by their class teacher to support the learning they have been doing in class.
The vast majority of Purple Mash is accessible when using iPads or Android tablets. Use Purple Mash via your tablet’s browser.
There are a variety of games that are really fun to play but also help children practise their maths & English skills. They are a great way to re-inforce learning outside of school hours.
Purple Mash lets your child save their work online. It’s very easy. Just look out for the floppy disk icon on the toolbar and follow the simple instructions.
Please let your class teacher know if you would like any support accessing the website/app or supporting your child with their learning.
