Times Table Practice

By the end of Year 2, children should be able to confidently recall their 2, 5 and 10 times table (up to 12x). They have recently been introduced to this and complete daily practise of these multiplication facts. Going forward, having secure knowledge of their times tables will enable children to become more confident in various areas of their learning, particularly multiplication and division, as well as fractions.

Ways to practise

To increase their recall speed and fluency of multiplication facts, children may practise their times tables at home. They could:

- Chant fowards and backwards in each times table 

- Find missing multiples (they could be removed from a number line/grid). You could use https://www.topmarks.co.uk/learning-to-count/paint-the-squares

- There are lots of times tables songs on the BBC teach website the children could learn. Use this link: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/times-table-collection/z4vv6v4 

- Play multiplication games to increase their recall speed - see a list of resources below





Bingo - You could call out times tables questions which need to be answered, or answers for children to identify the related multipcation equation.
