As a school we use Purple Mash as part of our ICT curriculum and across a range of subjects. Every child in school has their own login details so that they can access the wide range of activities from home. Please ask your child's teacher if you need any further information about Purple Mash or if you need another copy of your child's login details.

We have purchased Mathletics for use in school to support our Maths work. Children are given their login details to enable them to access the site from home. The children will be able to work on a range of maths tasks and compete against children all over the world! As children spend time on the site and earn points they will be awarded Bronze, Silver or Gold certificates. These are celebrated in a assembly and listed in our school newsletter.
