2Simple aim to make simple, powerful and creative educational software. And Animate 2 Educate believe they do just that as we use 2Animate, a 2Simple tool, within our training sessions.
2Simple’s most popular program is Purple Mash, an ever growing website filled with creative tools, games and curriculum resources to support and inspire children at school and at home. Purple Mash also includes 2Code which lets teachers with no prior knowledge of coding deliver engaging and challenging lessons that easily track pupil progress.
The latest Purple Mash software is Tabletoons, a revolutionary new tool that helps children learn the 12 multiple times tables by composing and sharing their own catchy song. Tabletoons will help teachers meet the requirements of the National Curriculum 2014 in a fun and engaging way, increasing children’s ability to remember what they learn.
Children in KS1 and lower KS2 have a selection of 17 musical animations to choose from, including a reggae, opera, pop and rock singer. Each multiplication in the table has the selected animation recall the sum using the power of music, and then the whole times table is played back to produce a table song in various musical styles.
By the end of year 4, pupils using Tabletoons will have memorised their multiplication tables up to and including the 12 multiplication table to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum 2014.
