Times Tables

The National Curriculum states that children should be able to recall multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12×12, by the end of year 4.

Across the school we are having a huge push on learning our Times Tables. We have found that many of our children struggle to retain their knowledge of the tables and as they move onto learning a new table, they forget the ones they have learnt previously.

 

Each class has been allocated specific times tables which they will focus on within each year. These are shown below:

Year 1

Counting in 2s and 10s.

Year 2

2, 5 and 10 times tables.

Year 3

3, 4 and 8 times tables (as well as already knowing the 2, 5 and 10 times tables).

Year 4

6, 7, 9 and 11 times tables (as well as already knowing the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables).

Year 5

12 times tables (as well as already knowing the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 times tables).

Year 6

Children should already know all their times table facts and will be using these to solve trickier maths problems. These include equivalent fractions, multiplication and division word problems, area and many more!

 

We will be working hard to learn times tables within school but we would also like children to be encouraged to practise them at home.

 

One way to learn your tables is by listening to the following songs:

Two Times Table Song

Three Times Table Song

Four Times Table Song

Five Times Table Song

Six Times Table Song

Seven Times Table Song

Eight Times Table Song

Nine Times Table Song

Ten Times Table Song

Eleven Times Table Song
