As with all skills, mathematical skills need to be practised on a regular basis.
If you have any questions or queries then please do not hesitate to ask any of the teaching staff who will happily help.
Times Tables Challenge:
It is an expectation that all the children learn and know their times tables. This is an essential skill and fundamental to all aspects of mathematics. On a weekly basis your child’s times table knowledge is assessed using a 5 minute speed test. When the children are able to complete the whole test successfully within the 5 minutes, they are awarded their Times Table badge.
In order to support them with this, the children are expected to complete 10 minutes of Times Table Rockstars a week for their homework. Times Table Rockstars is an online website which tests the children’s knowledge of Times Tables through online game activities. The website has been designed to that as the children become more proficient with a sequence of times tables, these are replaced with the sequences that they are not.
