***** PURPLE MASH UPDATE ****

Well done to all of you who have managed to get to grips with this. It has been a learning curve for us all and we had no warning to be able to practise at school. Anyway, you're doing great! Just a few pointers:

  • The '2Do' and 'Alert' tabs let you know that I have been in touch or set work.
  • Remember to use the 'Hand in' button when you have completed your work. This allows me to know you have finished and not just paused to get some exercise. If you go on the 2Do tab at the top, my comments will appear and you can choose to either 'continue work' or 'Hand in'. The background changes from blue to turquoise when it has been corrected and checked.
  • There is a 'display board' on the Sharing tab. When I have checked your edited work, it will be displayed for everyone to see.
  • If you have any problems please email school as we are constantly in touch with each other or in school to keep things running as smoothly as possible.
  • We have got this!

 If you're struggling to keep up with Joe Wicks or simply need an extra challenge, Oti Mabuse (from Strictly) is teaching a dance class every morning at 11.30am. You can watch her live or catch up later on all her classes on YouTube.

  • Go on Lexia each day if possible.
  • Use Phonics Play to practice phonics. (If you type Phonics Play into google you can use it for free now)

  • Use Purple Mash Art to create an Easter egg design.
