With over 100 billion of them sent every day, email is one of the world's most widely used and important forms of communication.
It's important that children understand how emailing works and how to do it safely.
With 2Email (the latest addition to Purple Mash) children as young as five can practice composing, sending and replying to emails in a safe and secure environment.
It includes a range of '2Respond' lesson activities where children receive emails from fictional characters and have to respond appropriately.
Teachers can also enable email sending between pupils, but our special safety feature means you'll be able to review every email sent. For extra peace of mind you can prevent emails from being delivered until they have been reviewed.
If you're a Purple Mash licence holder then you've already got 2Email. Just log in and you'll find it in the 'Tools' tab.
If you're not a Purple Mash licence holder but think your pupils would benefit from 2Email just click here to request a free 30 day trial.
