ICT is an exciting area of the world that is ever changing and evolving by the day. Purple Mash is an online resource that we use to support our ICT teaching and learning, built by professionals who specialise in the subject, ensuring that their knowledge is up to date.
The children all have their own usernames and log ins and so can access their account from home.
