Rainbow Times Table Challenge

As you are aware there have been changes since September 2014 to the National Curriculum. The new National Curriculum from 2014 states in regards to maths:

•    By the end of year 4, pupils should be able to recall multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12x12

•    There is no longer a separate calculator paper in Key Stage 2 SATs so mental calculations are gaining even greater prominence in primary schools.

These changes mean it is important for the children to learn their times tables facts and to be able to recall them quickly and accurately.  To support their learning of times tables we are pleased to inform you, we will be introducing a whole school Rainbow Times Table Challenge which we hope will improve their rapid recall, knowledge and understanding of multiplication.

We will continue to work within school to help your child learn their times tables, but we also hope they will be encouraged to practise them at home.

We would like all children to succeed at their Times Table Challenge!
