On this page you will find information about how to access learning from home.
It is important that whilst your child is off school, for whatever reason, that they continue to learn and complete tasks and activities that are set by their teachers. This will help them to keep their minds active, not fall behind in their studies and find it easier to return to school when they are able to.
We are setting and uploading work using our 'Purple Mash' learning platform. All pupils are familiar with using this platform as it is used every week in school.
Please contact the school office if you are unable to access Purple Mash and we will do all we can to help you and your child access learning at home.
If your child is not in school ‘Purple Mash’ will be used to set work for children to complete. Both the teachers and pupils can up load work to this platform. Each week Four Purple Mash activities will be set as 2do’s for the children to complete.
In addition to the above tasks set on Purple Mash we have created a Self Isolation Folder on Purple Mash – In this folder will be an instruction sheet, which sets out the tasks for the week. In this folder will be worksheets and activities for your child to complete, this may include some key concept teaching videos.
Submitting work completed at home:
All work will be set on purple mash and this will be a mixture of interactive '2dos' and activities that you can download and complete. There might also be tasks that you can complete and then take a photograph of such as a DT project or painting. There are two ways that you can send the completed word/PDF documents and photos to your teacher:
1. Upload the document or photograph to your work folder on purple mash.
2. Email your teacher the photograph or document using your year group email addresses (please note that these are for sending work only. Any questions should still be directed to the school office)
Your teacher will respond to the work as soon as they can.
OAK NATIONAL ACADEMY
We will also use ‘Oak National Academy’ to compliment what we send out to our pupils as part of our remote learning package. The Oak National Academy is free to use and does not require a log in.
