Do you struggle to understand your child's homework? Does your child need to practise their spelling and times tables? Are you looking for inspiration for projects and assignments?
The School A to Z app is an essential tool for every parent of school-aged children. Produced by the NSW Department of Education and Communities, the School A to Z app brings together a wealth of resources to help parents to understand and support their child's homework.
Our 'English A to Z' has more than 350 definitions of commonly-used English terms from primary and high school. Each word has an easy-to-understand definition based on the current school curriculum, with graphic illustrations and help sheets to help you.
With nearly 300 definitions, our 'Maths A to Z' will help you to understand what is happening in your child's classroom. Each word has an easy-to-understand definition based on the current school curriculum, with graphic illustrations, help sheets and 'how to' videos to help you support your child.
Technology is changing at an ever-increasing pace and - as a parent - it is not always easy to keep up with the latest trends and terminology. Our 'Technology A to Z' explains these terms in language that you can understand.
Our 'Spelling Bee game' provides hours of spelling fun for children of all ages. The Spelling Bee game is powered by words from Australia's national dictionary, the Macquarie Dictionary (Macquarie Dictionary Data (c) Macquarie Dictionary Publishers, 2012). There are three levels of difficulty and a leader board to track progress and improvement. Children can even create their own games for their spelling homework.
If your child needs help with their times tables, then the 'Maths Monkey Times Tables' challenge is sure to be a winner. Your child has to get the most number of correct answers before all of the bananas fall. Children can choose which number they want to practise and there is also a random game to keep them guessing.
Does your child have an assignment due tomorrow and you don't know where to start? We have prepared some 'assignment starters' for common classroom topics and themes to point you in the right direction.
If you are looking for an easy-to-use guide to help your child with their homework, then this is the app for you!
What's New in Version 1.8
Fixed iOS7 related issues, including the microphone no longer working and list index deletion issues.
The custom spelling list function on this app would be perfect if it gave you some indication of which words they were getting wrong each time. I find that teachers are constantly sending home spelling lists so it would be good to be able to remove the words that the kids are getting right and keep the lists updated.
I'm a kid
This app is just what I needed. I needed to learn some of my times tables so I went to this app. Some improvements; add more topics for assignments like more specific animals, Wright brothers and so forth, and to add eleven and twelve times tables cause I don't know my twelves yet.. But apart from that brilliant app download it now!
This is a great resource for my kids, who especially love the maths monkey. The only problem we have encountered is the app crashing when we try to create our own spelling list - would be awesome if this could be fixed.
