Pupils who have mastered their multiplications are more confident and competent in all aspects of Maths. This is why we work hard to teach times tables, embed the facts and track pupil's progress. We want all of our children to be fluent in their recall.
To support the class teaching of the times tables, we set weekly homework using the TimesTables RockStars App (https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth/school/student).
This engaging and fun approach not only helps children to become more fluent but also supports arithmetic understanding, develops mathematical concepts and raises maths confidence. It is also a great way of preparing pupils for the new Government Multiplication Tables Check (MTC). The MTC is a test for Year 4 pupils and its purpose is to measure national attainment in the recalling of times tables.
