Times tables

We promote the learning and securing of times tables in our school in a fun and active way. Helping your child to learn their times tables at home is one of teh most valuable things you can do to support your child to develop in all areas of their maths.

Quick fire recall is crucial- take a little time out the day to practice- it doesn't need to be formal- it could be while walking to the shops or during the adverts- little and often times tables practice is often the most effective approach.

Below is a link to times tables rockstars- this is an online platform for children to play games to earn coins for their avatar. It encourage pupils to develop rapid recall of times table facts. Your children will have a log- in stuck in their planner.
