IS YOUR CHILD READY FOR THE MTC?

What is the Year 4 multiplication tables check?

The multiplication tables check is a national online test for pupils in Year 4, which will be carried out in June 2020. Pupils are asked to answer 25 questions on times tables from two to 12. They are given six seconds per question, with three seconds rest between each question, so the test should last less than five minutes.

Questions about the six, seven, eight, nine, and 12 times tables are likely to come up most often, as these are the hardest for most children to learn. It’s a good idea to focus on these tricky times tables with your child.

Children creating a poster like this is a very empowering activity:  If I know 3 x 7 = 21 then, by the commutative nature of multiplication, I also know 7 x 3 = 21.

 

  • Write out all the 1x to 10x (or 12x) tables.
  • Cross out the related commutative fact, for example 2 x 1, 3 x 1, 3 x 2, etc.
  • 100 facts are suddenly reduced to 55 facts.
  • Take it one step further and cross out any facts related to 2x, 5x and 10x (end of KS1 age-related expectation) and 1x facts.
  • Only 21 facts are left!

All of a sudden, all children are now empowered as they can remember 21 facts!

A parents guide to times tables is included on the Maths page of this website
