Learning at Home with Purple Mash

We hope you have all enjoyed the learning activities that have been put on the website and the Twitter daily challenges. As it seem that the lock-down is going to carry on for some time, we thought it would be better to organise something a little more formal that would support you with home learning and also allow the teachers to keep an eye on what the children are doing and offer them support if needed.

Miss Jefferson and a working party of teachers have been investigating a range of learning platforms that we could use and have decided that the best way to provide the support you need is through a platform called Purple Mash.

Purple Mash is a comprehensive suite of learning tools that is designed to be used in the classroom and at home so is ideal for what is needed at the moment. It provides fun and exciting learning across all National Curriculum subjects which will keep the children engaged and make sure they don't forget that vital learning that has taken place this year.

If your child is having music lessons from the Schools Music Service please note that they are running online music sessions. They may have already contacted you about this but if they have not please go to this website for more information

VE Day

Friday 8th May is a very special day as it marks the 75th anniversary of the end of the second world war in Europe. Unfortunately, we will not be able to mark this as we would have liked to in school. However, it would be really great if you could do something at home to mark it. It would be really great if the whole school were to dress in red, white and blue for the day, learn how to sing the National Anthem (you and your family could even sing it and Tweet us), and find some interesting facts about World War II that you could share. We would really love to see any pictures or work that you have done to remember the day.

If you click on the links below you can access some of the resources that we would have used for our assemblies in school if we had been there. Some things for you to think about when you remember the end of the war.
