Learning the multiplication facts are essential as they make a very large contribution to numeracy and underpin our maths system like counting, number bonds and place value. If children can get a firm grasp of their times tables then they have a solid arithmetical foundation for future problem-solving.
Please use the materials below to guide you in helping your child become fluent in their tables.
In addition, all children have access to mymaths.co.uk and children in KS2 also have TT rockstars to practise their times tables and more. If children have forgotten either of their logins or passwords for these sites, please contact either their class teacher or Mr Barr.
For 2021... Do you have a child in year 4?
If so, they will have the opportunity to take the optional multiplication tables check (MTC), in June 2021. The purpose of the check is to determine whether pupils can fluently recall their times tables up to 12, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will also help your child’s school to identify pupils who may need additional support.
