Children are encouraged to explore maths using a variety of resources to support their understanding and they learn how to apply this understanding to a range of real life problems. Daily maths lessons take place where children rehearse basic number skills and develop confidence with computation and these skills are tested on a weekly basis. Children are also expected to practice number skills which are appropriate to their age and ability at home on a regular basis.
The Great Times Tables Bee!
At the end of term 2, there will be a 'Times tables' bee- like a spelling bee, but for times tables, where children can enter themselves to be quizzed on key multiplication tables and earn themselves prizes!
The first challenge is as follows:
KS1- can you learn your 2 times table and your ten times table?
Years 3 and 4- Can you learn your 3 and 4 times tables?
Years 5 and 6- Can you learn your 7, 8 and 9 times tables?
Good luck! Get learning during the holidays and watch this space for the date of the first times tables bee!
