Optional Times table practise
This year children in Year 4 will be expected to take a Multiplication Table Check. This is produced by the Government and will be taken in June. The children will be tested on their tables up to 12 x 12.
The MTC is an on-screen check consisting of 25 times tables questions. Your child will answer 3 practice questions before moving on to the official check, and will then have 6 seconds to answer each question. On average, the check should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete. It is so year 4 pupils can demonstrate fluent recall of the times tables and give them the time to input their answers.
Times Tables Homework
We will be working hard on our times tables this year in class and completing Times Table Rock Stars at home will be an important part of their homework. The children will need to know all their tables from the 2 x table up to 12 x tables confidently.
They are expected to use TT Rockstars for this which is a fantastic, fun tool which allows them to practise the TT and progresses them as the master different multiplication facts. Times Tables will be tested on Friday through our Times Table Challenge.
