Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check

In June, the Year 4s will need to take a short online test to make sure their times tables knowledge is at the expected level.  It will be an online test.  They will be asked 25 questions on times tables from two to twelve.  They will be given six seconds per question, with three seconds rest between each question, so the test should last less than five minutes.

Questions about the six, seven, eight, nine and twelve times tables are likely to come up most often, as these are the hardest for most children to learn. It would be beneficial to focus on these tricky times tables with your child.

There are plenty of ways to help your child prepare for this.  For example;

  • Practise on a device.  There are lots of times table apps and activities out there.
  • Play games - for example Times Tables Snap.
  • Learn the tricks.  There are lots of videos showing tricks and techniques online.
  • Use times tables wall charts.
  • Question them regularly.  Encourage them to learn the answers, rather than just count up in multiples.

 

Please do pop in and see me or Dojo me if you have questions or concerns about this.
