In Early Years the children have been learning about how to use Ipads to access Mini Mash, the Early Years area on Purple Mash.
Mini Mash links the appropriate resources on Purple Mash to the areas of learning and development from the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (2012).
The children have been learning to find their way around Mini Mash and have loved using it to enhance their development across the Early Years curriculum. The fun and colourful activities keep the children engaged in and enthusiastic about their learning
Here are Ash and Birch class enjoying using the Ipads to practice number recognition and counting using the 2Count app.
