Learning Your Times Tables
With the dawning of the new curriculum, the focus on learning the times tables has shifted quite considerably. The new expectations are as follows:
Year one : Count in multiples of 2, 5 and 10
Year two: Count in steps of 2, 3 and 5, and 10 from any number. Use and recall multiplication and division facts from the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Use multiplication facts from the 3 x tables. Show multiplication can be done in any order.
Year three: In addition to the above, count in multiples of 4 and 8. Recall and use multiplication and division facts from the 3, 4 and 8 x tables.
Year four: In addition to the above count in multiples of 6, 7 and 9. Recall multiplication and division facts for times tables up to 12 x 12.
In years five and six these facts are used and applied throughout the maths curriculum and are therefore vital.
