At Water Primary School we use Purple Mash as a basic platform to build our computing curriculum on. 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. In addition to these programs, the platform provides resources and themed lesson activities, which can be set for pupils to do at home. Feedback on their work can then be provided to the pupil, including recorded audio feedback, and all the work is stored online, within Purple Mash.
Included within Purple Mash is the EYFS platform, Mini Mash, which we use at Water Primary School with our youngest children.
Our computing curriculum includes the 3 predominant areas of computing - computer science, information technology and digital literacy. Knowledge and skills gained from these areas of the computing curriculum are used in appropriate areas in other curriculum subject areas.
