Times Tables

It is vital that children learn their times tables. There will be a national times table test for children at the end of Year 4 in Summer 2023.

This is the National Curriculum requirement for times table knowledge;

Y1 – count in multiples of 2, 5 and 10 recall and know all doubles to 10 and corresponding halves.

Y2 – Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables, including recognising odd and even numbers.

Y3 – Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and

8 multiplication tables.

Here is a link which will help you to learn any times table in just 5 days! Are you dedicated enough?

Y4 – Recall and use multiplication and division facts for

multiplication tables up to 12×12.

Y5 and Y6 – Revision of all times tables and division facts up to 12×12.
