Times Tables

The following page provides you with the multiplication facts your child should know by the end of Year 4. The progression of times tables below shows you how your child could apply their knowledge of commutativity (the factors can go in either order) to learn all of the times table facts.

 

Instant recall of times tables is critical in the search for fluency. Ideally, just like the number bonds, we would like all pupils to be able to recall times tables within 3 seconds. Again, this prevents cognitive overload and allows the pupils to focus on the learning taking place, rather than counting in their 8s to find the answer.

 

There are many ways in which you could work with your child to develop instant recall of times tables facts. Some of these are:

 

  • Rote Learning- saying the times table facts aloud multiple times.
  • Songs/rhymes- There are plenty of different songs and rhymes online that you could practice with your child!
  • Objects/arrays- You could work with your child to show multiplication facts with objects in arrays.
  • Times Table Practice- You can find different practice sheets online (available below) or visit TTRockstars with your child.
  • Testing- Provide your child with the challenge of answering a set of questions.
