It is an expectation that by the end of Year 4 children will fluently know their times tables to 12x12. Therefore alongside work done in school, it is important that children are also practising their times tables at home. It would be greatly appreciated if when practising times tables with your child that they are asked in a random order (e.g. 3x4, 7x4, 10x4 etc.) to encourage children to know the times table facts quickly and fluently. In school, the approach used is to say the full number sentence (e.g. “1 times 4 is 4, 2 times 4 is 8…) which supports children to remember them when asked at random.
Below are links to websites offering songs and games to support your child in learning their times tables.
