A variety of APPs to support learning
Teach your monster to read
A fantastic app which the children really love. It has a mixture of phonics and whole word games aimed at supporting reading.
Jungle Time. A great app to help your child with telling the time.
A wonderful app to support phonics and word building skills. Fantastic.
abc pocket phonics
This is a wonderful app based on Letters and Sounds, the phonics teaching programme used throughout many UK schools. I can’t praise this enough.
squeebles multiplication. A great app to help with multiplication.
These aim to improve your child’s understanding of place value and number bonds. Both are really good games and are suitable for your older children too.
Percy Parker is a wonderful times tables app for the end of year one onwards. It teaches them their times tables in a really enjoyable way – but the songs will stay in your head!
You might have heard your children talk about the Bee-Bot at school - it's often used in our classrooms to teach children about control programming and directions in maths. This lovely app version is good fun and free!
Reading Raven - recommended to me
An engaging app that teaches children phonics with a step-by step programme, one lesson at a time. We love the clear letter sounds as you click on each letter. It's also engaging with fab illustrations to hold a child's interest as they learn.
Meteor Math - recommended to me
An 'explosive' maths challenge with an arcade game feel - find two numbers to make the answer shown on the planet and watch as they explode! The game gets faster as you go up through the levels and it becomes exciting and challenges children to solve the sums more quickly. A great way of improving speed of mental maths.
A wonderful app aimed at improving phonics. This app covers all phases of letters and sounds.
