We have recently subscribed 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. 

Topics
Purple Mash has over 1,500 ready-to-use writing and painting projects. They cover everything from aliens to the Victorians. You can use the ‘Topics’ tab to browse by subject or, alternatively, use the search bar at the bottom right of the screen to look for something specific.

Tools and Games
There are 20+ open-ended tools and games inside Purple Mash. They range in complexity from simple painting programs to sophisticated coding tools. If you’re using something for the first time it is a good idea to watch the help videos which can be found by clicking the monitor icon at the top right of the screen or the help documents.
 
Saving and Sharing Work
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. To access saved files go to the ‘Online Work’ tab. Once saved you can also ‘share’ work. Just look out for the globe icon on the toolbar. This will share work to one of our school’s “display boards” or create a link so your work can be viewed online by people that don’t have Purple Mash.
 
Purple Mash on Tablets
If you have an iPad then there are several free apps that you can download as part of Purple Mash. These include Mash Cams, 2DIY and 2Create a Story. You can download them from the App Store and sign in with your Purple Mash username and password.
Alternatively, you can use Purple Mash on a tablet by opening it up in a browser window on your device. Not all of the tools work on tablets but there are many that do.
