Times Tables

Our aim is for all of our children to leave Yr 4 with a secure knowledge of their number facts. To achieve this, different year groups focus on learning specific tables while recapping the ones they know.

Year 1: 2x, 10x, 5x,
Year 2: 2x, 10x, 5x, 3x
Year 3: 2x, 10x, 5x, 3x, 6x, 12x, 4x, 8x
Year 4: 2x, 10x, 5x, 3x, 6x, 12x, 4x, 8x 7x, 9x, 11x
Year 5 and 6: Revision, Revision, Revision!

Teaching of timetables happens in many fun and varied ways. Children generally start with counting forwards from 0 in multiples then counting back from 12x that number to 0. When secure, children should count forward and backward from random multiples of the table they are learning and then move onto recalling x out of order e.g. 7 x 3 = 21
The children have weekly mini assessments that focus on their x tables and half-termly multiplication checks to assess their progress.

We also have an annual Times Table Week filled with fun assemblies, competitions and a grand finale where children work in teams to represent their class solving quick fire questions, multiple mysteries and word problems too. Our teachers even go head to head!
