Year 1

Welcome to Year 1, please click on the links to the left to access your class page.

We understand that some of you are having difficulty accessing Purple Mash. If so, please can you try the activity at a different time in the day as it is most likely because of the amount of people trying to access it at the same time. 

Please note that the daily activities can be completed in any order.
