 2 Wee Kids Math: £1.99.

Wee Kids Math (from Ebooks & Kids) has a whole bunch of colourful games to teach kids about numbers and basic maths. This app is good for children just starting to learn their number shapes and order (0-20), up to those starting out on addition and subtraction


 3 Pirate Treasure Hunt: Free

This is an app providing a variety of problem solving opportunities for children. As you help Pirate Jack to find the hidden treasure you take part in mathematical and literacy based tasks: shapes, spelling, addition sums, sequencing, and time problems, etc. It is great for the variety it offers and encouraging the children to adapt from one type of skill to another.


 4 Bee Bot: Free
The Bee-Bot App from TTS Group has been developed based on our well-loved, award-winning Bee-Bot floor robot. The app makes use of Bee-Bot’s keypad functionality and enables children to improve their skills in directional language and programming through sequences of forwards, backwards, left and right 90 degree turns.
 5 Star dash studios: Runner Game : Free
Star Dash Studios offers a creative, colourful and challenging chase around a movie studio where you have the chance to train yourself to improve your mental maths and to learn number skills.
 6 Chicken Coop Fractions: Free

This is a game aimed at Key Stage 2, particularly upper 4 and years 5 and 6. Move the nest along a number line to catch the hen’s eggs. This is best for consolidating fractions work, including improper fractions and equivalents. The splatted eggs and chirpy chicks add charm!

1 Kids Academy · 123 Tracing: £2.99.

Before you can do any maths you need to be able to recognize and write the numbers. Kids Academy 123 Tracing, for the younger children, helps little ones learn to do just that by using the iPad’s touchscreen. Children are introduced to the numbers and shown how to draw them using their finger. The numbers fill the screen so are suitably large format, and the tracing points well laid out.
