I know that teaching Yr 1 children about Word and PowerPoint may seem boring to a lot of people but considering students are exploring options and designing a document from scratch, in some ways, aren’t children using more creativity than if they were just using ready-made templates and images?  Word and PowerPoint are still widely used in the workplace today so skills in these are still relevant.  Children can also further develop their ICT skills by adding audio, images, upload hand-drawn illustrations and photos to personalise their stories and presentations.
