Helping Your Child

EYFS

The below booklet may be useful in helping you as a parent/carer to find out more about how your child is learning and developing during their early years.

Guidance to your child’s learning and development in EYFS

Key Stage 1

Times Tables

Learning times table facts can have a huge impact on a child’s ability in many areas of the maths curriculum. When the new curriculum was introduced in 2014, the government set out the following expectations for times table knowledge:

  • By the end of Year 2, children should know by heart all multiplication and division facts for their 10, 5 and 2 times tables (up to 12 x 10, 12 x 5 and 12 x 2)
  • By the end of Year 3, they should also know by heart all multiplication and division facts for their 3, 4 and 8 times tables
  • By the end of Year 4, children should know the multiplication and division facts for all times tables up to 12 x 12

How you can help at home

The best way for children to learn times tables is through regular practice. Times table facts need to be learnt so that they can quickly give the correct answer without needing to count up. There are some excellent games that your child can play on the internet which are good fun and encourage your child to keep coming back  to improve their scores. We would particularly recommend the following websites:
