Purple Mash

Please login using the Purple Mash login at the front of your homework book. Make sure you are logging into our school on Purple Mash – the website is:



As part of your weekly homework, you should be practising your times tables. In order to help you build up your speed of recall, you have been assigned the task of completing the online times table activities on Purple Mash.

You will be able to see your result and check any questions you may have made errors with. This will help you to see which times tables you need more practice with.

The more you practise the quicker your recall of facts will be.

Homework will be handed out on a Thursday as often as is possible.  This should be completed by Tuesday.  If your child needs help, please write a message in their book and we can go through it with them. Incomplete homework will need to be completed during play times.

Be the best you can be!
