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 send an email to your child (please look in 2email to find this message) 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 2email following the steps below:

1.) In the search bar type "2email"                     

  2.) Click on the 2email app, twice.

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

There are 1000s of other fun resources for your child to explore on here, for all curriculum areas.
