The School A to Z app has been created by the NSW Department of Education to help parents and their school-aged children, wherever and whenever they have homework and study questions.

It's available free for Android and Apple mobile devices, and is an essential tool containing:

English A to Z - more than 350 definitions of commonly used English terms from primary and high school. Each word has an easy-to-understand definition based on the current school curriculum, with illustrations and help sheets explaining the rules of grammar.

Maths A to Z - nearly 300 definitions to help you understand what is happening in your child's classroom plus illustrations, help sheets and 'how-to' videos.

Assignments: Does your child have an assignment due soon and doesn't know where to start? Assignment starters for common classroom topics and themes point you in the right direction.

Technology A to Z: Technology is changing at an ever-increasing pace and it's not always easy to keep up with the latest trends and terminology. Technology A to Z explains these terms in language you can understand.

Spelling Bee: Does your child need to practise their spelling? The Spelling Bee game provides hours of spelling fun for children of all ages. There are three levels of difficulty and a leaderboard to track progress and improvement. Children can even load their own weekly spelling lists into the game for practise and revision.

Maths Monkey Times Tables: Most children can use some extra help with their times tables, and the Maths Monkey Times Tables challenge makes it fun.
