As more teachers are looking to integrate digital technologies across the curriculum within their classes, we are delighted to share with you some exciting updates and new features that have been added to our DigiTech Scheme of work. To further support the delivery in school, enhance the impact of lessons and reduce teacher workload, we have updated the lesson plans, included editable downloadable slideshows for every unit, included supporting videos for teachers, updated our knowledge organisers, prior learning and future learning overviews, concept maps to gather information before teaching the units and\or after completing it and quizzes to review students' understanding from the unit, all to ensure that you can teach digital technologies, support ICT competencies and further students' learning across the whole curriculum with confidence.

Each month we highlight a #MashoftheMonth, focussing on a tool or application within Purple Mash and how it can be used within the classroom to support learning across the curriculum. During the month, if you share how, you have used the #MashoftheMonth, you will then be entered into a draw to win a 2Simple Goody Bag!
The #MashoftheMonth for May is Mashcams, the Purple Mash tool that transforms you into anyone from Captain Cook to an astronaut. This should be a lot of fun.

The amazing tool 2Create a Story is a favourite with so many teachers and students.
It enables children to create their own multimedia digital storybooks and brings their stories, recounts, information books and adventures to life.
There are three modes of 2Create a Story: My Simple Story, My Story and My Adventure Story. With these modes, you are able to put together amazing creative writing activities that can be used for cross-curricular activities and tie in all learning areas when working through a common theme.

Anne Frank was born in Germany on 12 June 1929. She was given a diary for her 13th Birthday in which she wrote daily and had planned to publish a book about her time in the Secret Annex where she hid from persecution. Her diary was published after her death and has been translated into more than 70 languages. Here we look at how you can remember her life with Purple Mash resources, including a pack designed to help children transition to secondary school.
