Purple Mash Throughout Summer

June 28, 2016

School may soon be out for summer but your pupils' free home access continues throughout the holidays as normal. Remember that you won't be able to give support to your pupils during this time, so to make sure children leave for the holidays knowing their login information, distribute login cards that state their usernames and passwords. If you need help with this, contact support@2simple.com


With the Rio Olympics, holidays, and hopefully some good weather, there’s a lot to look forward to this summer. Here are four example activities that capture the summer spirit and that children will love. You can see completed versions of all the activities mentioned here.

Design a Sun Safety Poster

Description: Re-enforce sun safe practice over the hottest months of the year by creating sun safety posters. ‘Think about’ prompts encourage children to think about the best steps to take to enjoy the sun responsibly, and space for drawing and clip art means they can put their own creative stamp on it.
