Hello all,


Thank you for all your hard work last week!



Below is a link to our home learning activities for this week. 


I hope you will enjoy them.


You will need access to the internet and your home learning packs - please contact the office if you do not have these.


Any queries please email on:


Have a good week!


Check out the new 'Celebration Page' under the home learning tab where I am sharing your wonderful work!

Please work through the Powerpoint and complete your work on the 2do's on Purple Mash. If you have any issues, please don't hesitate to contact me on:

Happy Easter!


Thank you for all your hard work for these past two weeks. It has been great to see all your work.


I know some of you would still like the opportunity to complete some of the purple mash '2do' tasks that I have set, therefore I have extended the 'hand in' dates to allow this. 


Why not try having a survival day - put up a tent, pack a bag, cook a meal outdoors.


But most importantly have a restful break, spend time together and enjoy! 


I too will be doing this. Therefore, I will set an 'out of office' to my email. Please feel free to email but do remember I will not be replying during the Easter break. 


Take care,


Miss Blood


Purple Mash Support


Support in the form of videos can be found by clicking on the links below. 


A printable copy is at the bottom of the page should you need it. Children in school have already been taught how to access the activities set by their teacher and so should be familiar with this. Please note the home screen on your computer will look slightly different as we are using the most up-to-date version, but all menu items still work in the same way. 


2dos and feedback can also be found by using the Alerts tab on the menu which looks like this:- 


For further support please contact your class teacher in the first instance. Passwords can be found on the parent letter that was sent when we registered your child or inside their planners. (Inside home learning folders for Nursery and Reception)


A video to support parents to access the parent portal.  A user guide with video links to support children in accessing their learning tasks, including how to submit work to the teacher for marking.
