New apps to help children to learn to read in Welsh: Magi Ann Apps 

Generations of children have learnt to read with the likeable Magi Ann black and white books, and Menter Iaith Sir y Fflint have updated the stories of Magi Ann, Pero, Tedi, Doli and Dicw by presenting them in colour and animated for the first time in app form.

Children can read the stories on their own, or listen to the narration. The apps are also a big support for non-Welsh speaking parents and for those who are learning, as it is possible to tap an English button to see translations of sentences, or individual words can be tapped to hear how specific words are pronounced.

The first two apps are available to download from the App Store and all four from the Play Store to smart phones and tablets, on both IOS and Android platform. The rest will be available at the App store within the next week.

One app is aimed at pupils in English-medium schools (with 12 simple stories), and the other 3 (with 26 simple stories) for children in Welsh-medium schools.
