Times Tables and Number Facts

It is crucial that the children have mastered all the times tables up to 12x12 by the end of Year 4. If they have already learnt them all, there are some ideas below for how they can extend that knowledge.

 

If you can't access TTRockstars, please email us for your child's usrname and password and we'll pass them on as soon as we can. However, you don't need the internet to practise the times tables. Instead you could:

  • Chant the tables together;
  • Count in steps of 5, 6 or whichever table you are learning - count up and down;
  • Write the tables out from memory;
  • Make flash cards with the question on one side (eg 3x6) and the answer on the back (eg 18);
  • Make cards with the question and answers on seperate cards then play 'picture pairs' with them, matching up the answer and question;
  • Practice the divisions facts;
  • Print and complete the Times Table Booklets below;
  • Working out other multiplication and division facts (eg if you know 3 x 6 = 18, you also know 3 x 60 = 180 and 300 x 6 = 1800).

 

If your child finds mental calculations more tricky, you could use the Number Facts Tracking Record below to see which facts they need to learn. They should know the facts in each step off by heart without hesitation (ie they don't have to work it out). Tick off those they know and practise those they don't.
