The way we are teaching and testing times tables has changed.

As you are aware, there have been changes to the National Curriculum since 2014.

The 2014 National Curriculum states in regards to maths: By the end of year 4, pupils should be able to recall multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 x 12. This means that it is very important for children to learn their times table facts and to be able to recall them accurately and quickly.

The teaching of times tables will be given an even greater emphasis in class with all children spending at least 5 minutes of every maths lesson practising their times tables skills. They will then be tested once a week, moving up through the times tables, receiving certificates and extra playtime when they are successful.
