Mash Club is here

February 13, 2018, 9:15 am

 

 

Mash Club is the computing club that puts children in charge of their learning, taking them on an after-school journey so creative they'll never want to leave.

 

Children create everything from dragon-dodging wizards to dancing robots then blog about their designs across 8 self-guided sessions. They follow a simple guide for each session and cross out each step as they progress.

 

For each session they attend, budding coders and bloggers receive a new sticker. Collect all 8 and they complete the picture on their ID card.

 

Print and cut out the stickers and names cards here, or order high quality cards and stickers as part of our premium Mash Club pack.

 

Designed for 7 to 11 year olds, the sessions are self-guided so adults don't need any prior experience to facilitate them, and the Getting Started Guide takes leaders through everything they need to know before the first meeting. 

 

Mash Club is completely free for Purple Mash subscribers and all the resources you need to promote and run it are available here.

 

To add value to your Mash Club, order a high quality, 15 pupil printed pack, including:

 

  • 1 x Getting Started guide
  • 2 x A2 posters
  • 15 x A4 certificates 
  • 15 x pre-folded name cards
  • 140 x stickers to fill the name cards, with a few spares just in case

 

Packs are available for £30 +VAT. Order yours here.
