Children to develop a ‘can do’ attitude and to broaden their knowledge and understanding of how Maths is used in everyday life.
In June 2020, it will become mandatory for year 4 children to sit a multiplication tables check. The multiplication tables check is designed to help ensure children in primary school know their times tables up to 12 off by heart. As well as being critical for everyday life, knowledge of multiplication tables helps children to solve problems quickly and flexibly, and allows them to tackle more complex mathematics later on in school.
At Rosherville, from Year 2-Year 6, children will be given time in school to practice their times tables every day and will be tested once a week. They will then be awarded certificates when they achieve the following:
Bronze: 2x, 5x, 10x
Silver: 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 10x
Gold: 12 x 12
Platinum: Able to score at least 90/95 on the 12 x 12 facts in 3 minutes
