Primary apps

iPad apps in general span a wide age group – so we really recommend that you go to our Fantastic Apps pages and look at the Must Haves and the Activity sections – all of those will find their use within the Primary Classroom – our list below covers of many years from pre school to P7 for activity led learning and many are curriculum specific.
