Purple Mash

THE HAYFIELD LANE FAMILY

 

Parents are a child’s first and life-long teacher and that is why it is so important the relationship between home and school is good; it makes a difference to our children. 


We aim to communicate with parents regularly about their child’s progress and parents can contact staff to discuss their child’s progress at  any time, in addition to the parent evenings in the autumn and spring terms and the Annual Report to Parents at the end of the summer term. 


To actively engage with parents and help inform parents of how they can effectively support their child’s learning, we share learning regularly through the website on the class page, share online curriculum information for the term so that  parents know the key knowledge their child will be learning. We also  provide ‘parent sessions and family learning sessions . 

 

Throughout the year we also hold celebration family sessions to build our relationship as a BIG FAMILY. Examples of this include the Mothers and Fathers Day events, Halloween Pumpkin Carving Workshop etc.....

 

We welcome input from our parents and encourage everyone to contribute via PARENT FORUM. Please see the COMMUNITY section of the website for additional information. Working together, we can make the school the very best that it can be for all.

 

What is Purple Mash?

 

  • Purple Mash is a fantastic online platform from 2Simple.
  • The site has creative tools, themed activities and games for all ages from Nursery through to Year 6, to help the children practise and improve their computing skills through engaging, enjoyable and exciting activities. 
  • We use many of the resources to help enhance other curriculum subjects such as using the graphing tools to compare data in maths or using the program 2Sequence to create wonderful musical compositions. 
  • The themed activities and projects often have videos, writing prompts, word banks, themed photographs, success criteria for the projects and clipart that link to all aspects of the curriculum.
  • As it is online, everybody has their own online space, with unique log in and password, and is able to access it at home as well as in school.
