Important Information - Home Learning


Hi Class 2,

We are so sorry you cannot be at school at the moment but we will do our best to support your home learning.


As explained in the email from school, some work will be set on Purple Mash and some other resources and videos will also be used to support learning.


Please keep checking in your '2Dos' or 'Alerts' for updated tasks and new emails on Purple Mash. 

A link to a folder with videos from me, Powerpoint lessons and tasks will be sent via an email. 


Any questions, please email me via Purple Mash.

Sharing your home learning with Miss Garratt


In order to show me the home learning you complete you can take a photograph of it and send it on Purple Mash emails.


After marking your own Maths work with the answers on the end of the Powerpoints you can let me know how you got on and if you found anything challenging. 


If you are working on a laptop, you could type up your work and attach it as an file by email on Purple Mash.


If it is a Purple Mash activity I will receive your work already and I will send a comment back to you as an alert as I have done previously. 


Please let me know if you ever find something challenging and would like further explanation or support. 











Important: Class 2 Home Learning 


From Wednesday 14th October 2020, Class 2 will be completing learning on Purple Mash as we have our homework the past few weeks. 


Please use your purple mash login from your reading journal and use your home work book for any home learning you need to write on paper. You can also continue practising your timestables on Timestable Rockstars.


There will be links to videos and additional resources to help you under the dates below. 


I will miss seeing you all these next two weeks Class 2 but, work hard at home and we will hopefully be back together after our school holiday to complete some learning together and in person!
