Year 1's current focus in maths is  multiplication.

The children have been counting in 2s, 5s and 10, and using this to help them when answering problems. The children have been using their timestables knowledge to create and answer questiona about arrays.

Year 1 LOVE their weekly computing lessons. The children have become competant at logging into the computers, opening, minimising, maximising and closing applications and using the track pad to move the cursor on the screen. 

The current focus is using those skills to create art online using the free drawing software, Sketchpad.
