Wanniassa Hills Primary App of the week.....


App Logo of Maths with Springbird

The apps will be for iPads because that is what we use at school. They may be available for tablets on the Google App store.

Maths with Springbird is a fun and educational game available on the iPad, designed for children aged 4-8 years old. Help your child master their maths skills by freeing all of Springbird's friends! I have shown this to many junior classes. It is free to download the basic app but it does have in-app pruchases.

Maths with Springbird HD - Curriculum aligned mathematics for young children
