Top 5 iPad apps for the classroom

These are my top 5 iPad apps for the classroom

Top 5

However, as I was writing them down, I did wonder whether to make it a top 10 list!  Quite hard to choose just 5, but if I had to, these would be the ones.  I have used these in the classroom loads with Reception up to Year 6 as they all lend themselves to a wide range of ages and abilities.  What I like about these apps, is that they all work so well together.  There are many others I love too, but  these are my starting 5.  What are yours?
