Times Table Activities

Supporting your child with times tables

We often get asked at parents’ evenings what can be done to help children at home with their maths – learning times tables is a brilliant way of helping your child and it really can make a huge difference. The quick recall of multiplication and division facts (times tables) are of high importance. This skill enables children to answer related mathematical questions with ease.

We have put together a booklet with ideas to help you support your child learn their times tables.

It is also important that we approach the teaching and testing of times tables in a progressive format from Year 2 to Year 6. According to the National Curriculum 2014 the expectation of times tables in each Year Group is as follows:

Year 2: 2x, 5x, 10x

Year 3: 3x, 4x, 8x

Year 4: 6x, 7x, 9x, 11x, 12x

Year 5: All x and ÷ facts (12×12)

Year 6: All x and ÷ facts (12×12) and related language/symbols e.g. % and square root
