Every pupil will be expected to know their times tables up to 12 x 12 by the time they reach the end of primary school.
Under the new measure, all children will have their multiplication skills checked at the age of 11 as part of the government’s commitment to giving every child an excellent education.
The Department for Education has confirmed the government’s intention to introduce an online multiplication tables check to be taken by pupils at the end of year 4 from the 2019 to 2020 academic year.
This means our current Y3 cohort will be in Y5 when the check is introduced, but they will still need to know their times tables in preparation for the KS2 SATs and also as a general life skill. Here are some websites that will help them to learn these in addition to the work we do in class.
The children have now all got a Times Tables Rock Stars account! They will have brought home their username and password but if you have any trouble logging on then check these details with us in school.
World famous rock musicians are the best at what they do because they've spent hours practising guitar chords, writing music or playing on the drums. It's just the same with times tables – all Times Table Rock Stars need to practise and practise and practise.
