Ratings and Reviews
An excellent resource for upper primary aged students. Explanations are clear, the high quality videos are very engaging and the learning activities are thoughtful and thought provoking. The Teacher Handbook provides an excellent support with many great activity ideas for the classroom, and encourages teachers to take the learning off the screen too. Kids will love the character ‘Bottom’ and will enjoy making up their own spells and performing the effects of them!
Fantastic app for primary age kids, excellent content and really unique
Teachers desperately need apps like this one. Brilliant!
