Purple Mash is an award-winning website for nursery and primary school children. It enables children to explore and enhance their knowledge in a fun and creative way.

Purple Mash is a wonderful resource to support children's learning both in and beyond the classroom. Certainly the best website on the internet for Primary School children to do creative work on. Purple ​​Mash has great features that promote learning in different subject areas and supports our cross-curriculum approach. I have found children are excited and engaged when using Purple Mash, it's a brilliant learning resource! We’re always looking for tools that provide us with new and innovative ways to deliver the curriculum, and that’s exactly what we’ve found in Purple Mash. The children love working on Purple Mash and it makes them more confident and happy in class.If you could just do me a favour and try to make all schools use Purple Mash. I think it would be a good influence. Purple Mash is the best purchase I've made for my school, bar none. I like to go on Paint Projects and colour in all the pictures on it.I love Purple Mash because it is so fun. I find it interesting.I love using 2Type! It makes typing fun and I am getting good at it.I've really enjoyed exploring.  There's so much to Purple Mash, it's like manna from heaven!
