What is Purple Mash?
Purple Mash is a cloud-based platform for primary-aged children. It contains a wide range of age-appropriate, creative software tools for writing, drawing, coding, animating, blogging and much more. ... Purple Mash contains digital tools for writing, drawing, painting and activities across the curriculum. This is the platform that we use at school to deliver Computing lessons. Each child has their own login and password to access Purple Mash. There are often "2dos" (activities or games) allocated that supplement lessons completed in school - often not only in Computing but other subjects too. Please encourage your child to log on to Purple Mash and discover what there is "2do"!
Parenting In A Digital World
The digital world is vast, exciting and forever evolving at such a pace that parents often find it hard to keep up. Our children have never known life before the online world and are getting more and more tech savvy at an earlier age. This causes many of us anxiety because we are not experts, we have not grown up in the age of online technology and we have not had childhood experience to draw upon when providing guidance for our own children.
However, the digital world doesn’t have to be considered a place of worry for parents; in fact, it can be embraced as a tool for building a better future for us all.
2Simple have put together this informative guide (below) to help support you in enabling your child to grow into a responsible digital citizen who is able to keep themselves safe while, at the same time, getting the very best from the digital world.
In this guide, you will find tips and advice for each of the key areas of online safety for primary-aged children. Each of these areas is further broken down into tips for parents of children aged 5 to 7 and for those of children aged 7 to 11.
