Collins Big Cat

A great animated book for young readers, where the children have several options: have the story read to them, read the story themselves or adapt the images to create their own story. They can write their own text or record their narrative; with opportunities to add speech bubbles and thought bubbles.

Monster Hunt: The Memory Game

Great for developing attention and concentration skills, and improving working memory. You get a few seconds to view where the monsters are hidden and then have to click on their hiding places. The difficulty grows, the better you get!

Play 123

Has short interactive games which make good use of a variety of touchscreen gestures, with opportunities to cover shapes, colours and colour mixing and numbers. The voice does have an American accent!

Hickory Dickory Dock

Lovely animated characters which encourage children to interact with the little mouse. The use of rhyming poetry helps teach children the numbers 1-12 and their position on the clock; being able to move the hour hand round or drag it to a certain time for specific effects. A good introduction to clock faces.

Teach Your Monster to Read

Teach your monster to read is an award-winning phonics and reading game that’s helped millions of children to learn to read. Children create a monster and take it on a magical journey over three extensive games – meeting a host of colourful characters along the way and improving their reading skills as they progress.

Hairy Letters - £2.99

Great for phonics and letter formation; including upper and lower case. The lower case of each letter plays an animation and the upper case says its name. Letters can then be fitted together to make words: three letter words to begin with and then progressing to four and five letters.
