What's on ZingiTT?

Simplify school speak

As the parent of a primary school or nursery-aged child, it can sometimes feel like their home-learning and their school-learning are two totally different things. 

We all want the best for our children. That goes without saying (even though we just said it!) but how do we help them with what they're learning in school when even the language they use (digraph, anyone? Number sentence? Fronted adverbi-whatsit?) sometimes sounds like complete nonsense? Well, that's where we come in.

 

Support your child's learning

ZingiTT gives you access to dozens of short, simple videos to help you understand, reinforce and support your child's learning. You can watch them wherever, whenever and they're always there to refer back to. The videos contain fun activities you can do with your children - with no preparation, no expensive and messy resources, and no stress - together with tips and tricks that will help you to take the pressure off and support your child's learning journey both academically and emotionally. Happy, confident parents - happy confident kids...and ZingiTT is all you need!
