Today, we took a quick look at the new Rising Stars Maths revision app for Year 6. We have not tried it with a class yet but we are really excited about how we could utilise it both at home and school. There are lots of games apps that we use around multiplication tables and number bonds, but there is also room for presenting children with questions that they will see in their SATS test. From what I have seen of this app it presents these questiwons in a palatable and gamification environment. Play well and score highly and you unlock the Level 5 material.
I can see this will also be a great tool to recommend at parents evenings and I already have parents downloading it this evening.
