Olympic Times Tables

Times tables are an important part of the maths curriculum. They are introduced in Year 2 and pupils are expected to be fluent in all facts (up to 12×12) by the end of Year 4.  Every week, your child will be tested on their times table facts through our Olympic Times Tables Challenge .  This involves a 3 minute test in which children are required to recall a range of multiplication and related division facts.  Please find more information on the leaflet attached, including the facts  that need to be known to move up to the next level.
