From 2Simple - New for 2007!
These four brand new programs continue 2Simple’s mission to provide creative, powerful educational software for the primary age-range. As ever, these come with a wealth of resources including support videos packed with teaching ideas and usage tips.
2Paint A Picture
Everyone can be an artist with this art software specifically designed for children in the Foundation Stage to Year 6. Eighteen templates take children on an artistic journey from early exploration of pattern making, to virtual drippy wet paint to exploring well known artistic styles such as Pointillism and Impressionism. Learners experiment with a variety of brush styles and pattern making templates and can make use of the helpful digital mannequins which help give them a sense of proportion. Older children can create powerful effects with the digital picture editing tools too. The support videos which accompany 2Paint A Picture give a large selection of easy-to-follow ideas, providing useful links with the Art and ICT curriculum.

Maths City 1
Early Years children can explore practical maths through five curriculum areas in this virtual world: Transport, Space, The Farm, Shops and Outdoor Play. From racing and sorting cars to running a toyshop or designing their own rocket ship, children are in control of their mathematical choices. Videos from adult experts and children role-playing the topic introduce young learners to mathematical vocabulary. Children investigate maths through creative play or differentiated activities, supported by spoken or sung instruction videos. Practitioners can use the resources and drop-down question prompts included to help children develop skills in speaking and listening as well as both collaborative and independent work.

For example, in the problem solving scenarios, children can be astronauts choosing equipment for a rescue mission or perhaps journalists putting together a media bulletin as updates flood in by newswire, SMS, email, voicemail or fax.
