KS1 - Years 1 & 2

Online Learning

We use the excellent educational site Purple Mash to set work for your child.  This will make sure your child can keep up with their school work in case they have to self-isolate and learn from home.  It will also be used to set homework. 

Every day during lockdown, your child will be set new work to complete on Purple Mash.  Your child's teacher will create a blog that describes the work your child should complete.  The email will usually include links to videos, online lessons or a video from their teacher explaining the work. 

You can access the blog following the steps below:

1.) Click on sharing,

2) Click on shared blogs


3)  Click on the correct learning blog         

4. Once inside the blog, you will find the learning for each day. Click on the blue title to view the learning.

5) Children can then reply to the learning straight onto the blog using the Post comment button


You can also check alert button on your child’s home page for work that has been set.
