My son loved doing the "maths 4-6" app when he was younger. His younger sister is wleking through it at the moment and he has asked if there's anything he can have on his iPad. Any recommendations? And yes.. I have 2 maths loving children, a little obsessed you could say of my youngest

Should add that he is going into Y4 in September. Already have bored or squeebles and he likes TT rockstar now. Was hoping for something with bite size on decimals, fractions, angles, algebra

Yes Dragonbox is great, basically all of their apps! Dragonbox Elements for geometry, Algebra 5+/12+, Numbers/Big Numbers, and also their chess app if you want something a bit different.

My two also enjoy an app called 'Fraction Slices' (I think) (fractions).

If you don't mind the (astronomical) cost, then Smartick is quite good too. We're about half-way through a free 6 months trial and both kids ask to do it pretty much every day. It has a limit of 15 minutes per day, with the idea of 'little and often' being more useful than irregular long sessions. Content wise it covers all you listed (and more, e.g. logic/non-verbal reasoning/verbal reasoning/numerical reasoning/coding) but you don't get to choose, you just do what you're presented with each day. The programme adapts to your child's abilities. Both of mine have learned more from that in the last three months than in the whole last year at school - whilst enjoying it. But it takes a little while to 'show'.

I like the look of fraction slices and I'm off to look at Smartick now-- if sounds intriguing! Thank you
