Purple Mash


Our School uses Mini Mash through the Purple Mash website for its home learning site.  The pupils will need to log in - this password was sent out in their book bags last week.  Please feel free to email me (sent out on text last week) if you cannot access your account. In the early years version of Purple Mash named Mini Mash it allows pupils to access a plethora of activities relevant to the EYFS curriculum.  I will produce a user guide throughout the next couple of weeks that will highlight some key activities.  I have set a 'Spring' activity pack for the children to complete on the mini mash home page - in the top right hand corner.  You can save the work the children have completed - again I will complete a user guide for this.  

I have sent out a yellow writing book with some suggested activities for the children to complete.  I have provided an additional blue mathematics book for the children to complete some suggested activities.
