Last week we focused on shape, symmetry and co-ordinates.

Next week we will be focusing on multiplication and in particular looking at the 7 & 9 time tables. Encourage you child to practice these times tables so that they will be able to recall their multiplication facts. We will also be looking at patterns found in the 7 & 9 times tables.
