Extra fun activities
Purple Watermelon is a site that provides engaging ideas, challenges, mindfulness and assemblies for parents to stay sane.
We are not focused on academic literacy and maths based activities; we are attempting to offer engaging, fun and mindful ways to keep you and your children sane and happy through this crisis. We will, however, link in ideas for keeping basic literacy and maths skills alive.
We are four head teachers who all have over twenty years of teaching experience and much parenting, aunty and uncle experience. All of the advice and tips posted here have been tried and tested in schools and classrooms over the years. We have extensive expertise in behaviour management, teaching, engaging pupils and how to stay sane when all around you is chaos!
