Best 2017 iPad apps for EYFS / Reception: a full list of educational apps for all subjects

Best 2017 iPad apps for EYFS / Reception: a full list of educational apps for all subjects

As Computing subject leader, I was tasked with trying and testing a multitude of apps for use on the school iPads. After testing a multitude of apps (some poor, some great) I made a full list of the best apps for each subject. This list is the EYFS group of apps for Literacy, Numeracy, programming, Design and Technology, imaginative play and a section of really useful apps for staff iPads. All apps are priced and available on itunes currently which ensures your iPads stay current and engaging rather than becoming expensive cameras for staff! If you would like more time-saving resources like this one, including a list of KS1 and KS2 apps for each subject, please visit https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/Klein100

DCF for Primary

DCF for Primary

Rob-bot Resources presents a complete guide to support primary school teachers in the delivery of the Digital Competency Framework (DCF) in Wales. Following the Donaldson Report (2015), the need to improve digital competency within students across Wales was identified as being as important to the development of students as literacy and numeracy. This document provides practical solutions as to how primary teachers of years 3-6 can confidently deliver these requirements across a broad range of subjects. Where possible I have included "unplugged" solutions, i.e those that don't require a computer to fulfill the requirements, so that teachers of all backgrounds can feel confident in the delivery of the framework. ***Please leave a review! ***
