Anne Frank's Birthday - 12th June

April 27, 2022

Anne Frank was born in Germany on the 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.

International Dance Day - 29th April

April 22, 2022

International Dance Day is celebrated every year on 29th April to promote art, culture and dance as an art form. It also aims to act as a ‘wake-up-call for governments, politicians and institutions which have not yet recognised its value to the people and to the individual [or] realised its potential for economic growth’. In this blog we take a look at some Purple Mash activities related to dance and giveaway a free samba dance lesson from Striver.
