Times Tables Facts
Children who have mastered their times tables gain a solid foundation in mathematics that will help them throughout their progression within the subject. The national expectation is that every child must be able to answer any times table question mentally by the end of Year 4. Children are expected to know all times tables up to 12 x 12, the facts in any order (eg. 6 x ? = 42 or 42 ÷ ? = 6) and related division facts (eg. 6 x 6 = 36 so 60 x 6 = 360, and 3600 ÷ 60 = 60) and apply this knowledge to other calculations. For more guidance on relation multiplication and division facts, please see the Knowledge Organiser below.
All children in Y5 are expected to practise their multiplication tables regularly as part of home learning. They have their own TimesTableRockstars (TTRS) account, which should be used daily to further learning. We will have a class leaderboard, seeing who can complete the most multiplication and divison facts within 60 seconds! Children do not need to sit for long periods of time - 5 minutes practise every day can go a long way. This could be TTRS, playing other multiplication games on their devices, chanting tables whilst playing games, or simply challenging them to answer questions on the drive to school!
