Year 4 – Times Tables Update

Year 4 – Half-Term Times Tables Practice

As you will all be aware, all Year 4s complete a Multiplication Times Table Check to ensure that they can recall their times tables facts accurately and at speed. We are so proud of our Year 4 pupils because they have all made excellent progress and the adults at school sometimes struggle to keep up with the speed at which they can recall their times tables!

The Multiplication Times Table Check is shortly after the half-term break (week commencing Monday 10th June). To ensure that our pupils keep up with their speedy recall, we have set an Ultimate Battle of the Bands between the two Year 4 classes. The winning class will receive a prize in the first week back!

In addition to this, please encourage times table games within your household (this may be testing each other on a mixture of times table questions, writing the multiples of a number out on paper and racing to splat the correct answer to a question, writing times tables facts onto the patio with chalks etc.). Please speak to your child’s class teachers if you would like some more inspiration for fun times table practise.

Please also use the following website to practise recall and experience what the real Multiplication check will feel like.
