Course Outline

2Simple's Purple Mash is a subscription based online platform of educational tools and resources aimed at the foundation phase and KS2. Accessible via the internet, Purple Mash is currently being used by many schools across Wales and the UK. This course will provide staff with an overview of the online suite of tools and resources. It will also look at how some of these tools can be used to support many aspects of the literacy and numeracy frameworks in the primary school. Additionally there will be opportunities to look at the how the platform can be used to extend opportunities for learning. During the day you will have hands-on practical experience in using the tools, a chance to browse through the huge variety of ready-made topic resources and also the opportunity to map these resources against your school half termly / termly overviews.
