At Old Town, we understand that Computing has become an integral part of our current lifestyle and therefore our computing curriculum reflects this. Children at Old Town have opportunities to use computers on a regular basis in school, as well as a being taught a dedicated Computing Curriculum. We teach children that computing includes a range of media from computers and cameras to remote control toys. Our Computing Curriculum includes SEND ways in, to ensure that all children in the school are able to access the 'key knowledge' that is being taught.
Purple Mash is an award-winning website for nursery and primary school children. It enables children to explore and enhance their knowledge in a fun and creative way. The simple to use programs allows students to learn complex IT skills such as animations, coding, programming and debugging, music creation, and much more.
Purple Mash contains dozens of powerful open-ended tools and educational games that let our children learn through unique and creative lessons, no matter what the subject.
And best of all, children can log on at home to access what they have been learning at home to either enhance their knowledge or just have fun!
Purple Mash will work from almost any device, although from phones it will display a warning message before you continue to the site.
