Purple Mash Guidance

Using Mini Mash with EYFS children 


Your EYFS Home Learning Pack contains a letter and log in details for Purple Mash, an online resource which we use in school. Within the Purple Mash content is 'Mini Mash', which is specifically designed for Early Years children.


When your child logs in to Purple Mash they will be taken directly to Mini Mash. The Mini Mash homepage looks like a classroom, with indoor and outdoor areas. You can access the outdoor area by clicking on the classroom door.

There are different areas for the various aspects of learning: reading and writing, numbers and counting, music, drawing and painting, role play etc. If you hover your cursor or finger over these areas, they will animate and tell you which areas they are. Simply click on an area to access the resources in it.


If your child completes a piece of work, they can save it in their own tray. Click on the purple button with three white horizontal lines in the top left of your screen and click 'Save'. 


We have been using Mini Mash in EYFS since September and the children are really good at navigating their way around. However, if you need any assistance with this resource, please get in touch with school and we will be happy to help.
