Afterlight

This is one of a host of photo editing apps. We are fans of Afterlight because of its ease of use, variety of filters and textures and fairly cheap price! It’ll cover all the basics you’d need in schools for editing photos and the products can be shared easily.

Earthviewer

earth

Earthviewer is a fascinating app showing the changes to the Earth of millions of years – the drift of the continents, the changing sea levels, periods of mass extinctions and major impacts. Whilst a lot of this information may be more useful at secondary level, it is a great alternative to reading about the deep… Read More

We really like this alternative way of practising times tables facts! Work out the answer to each question then aim at the correct answer to pop the bubbles. If you have a set of tablets in class, this provides a great activity for a small group to work on for a few minutes prior to… Read More

Pettson’s Inventions

pett

A great problem solving app, really good for getting those most eager mathematicians / scientists thinking! It is good for developing collaboration between pairs of children or for independent tasks. The children work their way through a series of problems, designing solutions and collecting cogs which they’ll use later on. There are further apps available… Read More

ABC Mysteriez Hidden Letters

abc

Our children love this app. All the letters of the alphabet are hidden away within super detailed images. There is a sense of competition with a timer ticking away as they seek all the letters.  It is great for visual discrimination, developing their eye for detail. We have linked to the free versions on both… Read More
