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.
If you would like to practise these tests at home, please click on the links below:

Maths Calculation Strategies
The teaching of maths and calculation methods has changed over the years and we want to ensure you can support your child with their homework. Please find attached our calculation strategies for the 4 operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). On each document it will guide you through the the objectives from the national curriculum as well as how to help your child using the correct methods. If you would prefer a hard copy please ask at the main office.
