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.

Technology A to Z Technology A to Z: 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.
Spelling Bee icon Spelling Bee: Does your child need to practise their spelling? Our Spelling Bee game provides hours of spelling fun for children of all ages. There are three levels of difficulty and a leader board to track progress and improvement. Children can even create their own games with their weekly spelling words. Multiple lists can be created so more than one child can practise their spelling.
The Spelling Bee game is powered by words from Australia's national dictionary, the Macquarie Dictionary
(Macquarie Dictionary (C)

Publishers, 2012).

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.
Assignment starters icon Assignments: 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.
