One of the best ways you can help your child at home is to support them in learning their multiplication and division facts. Below is our parent booklet with lots of information about how you can help as well as some useful website links.
We do lots in school to help children to learn their times tables. For KS2 pupils there is a lunchtime club (Year 2s can come too from January onwards) where children can play games, do activities and be tested to improve their recall. KS2 pupils also have a subscription to Times Tables Rockstars (and Year 2 pupils from January onwards) where they can play against themselves of others. Please encourage them to log in and practice at home! KS2 pupils each have a times tables record (and Year 2 pupils from January onwards). If they have accurate recall of their target times tables they get a sticker. Once the have completed a row of times tables they will be awarded a certificate in assembly.
Here are the end of year expectations for each year group:
Year 2- Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables (and children to be able to count in 3s)
Year 3- Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 times tables
Year 4- Recall multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 × 12
