All children will come home with a prepared pack. In the pack will be age appropriate work-already copied and ready to go. There will be paper to write and draw upon, pieces of Maths, English, Science and Topic work. We will also include a pencil so that the children can complete the work set. In the pack will be your child's login for Purple Mash-our online learning platform. Every child will have a login and every child will be set a series of online tasks that can be achieved at home and can be remotely marked by the teachers at home. This to do list can be added to by the teachers if needed. Many of our children have used Purple Mash for their homework and are familiar with the platform.
