Times Table Challenge
|Weekly Times Table Challenge|
At Eastwood, we have weekly times table challenges ranging from star award to platinum award. The star award can be started in year 1 but generally, it is started in year 2 when the children are explicitly introduced to the times tables. Depending on the challenge, the children answer a certain amount of questions correctly in a set time. It is an expectation that by year 4, children should be working towards their silver award. In year 4, children will take the Governments Multiplication Check. This is usually in June.
Practice challenge sheets can be found below.
|Times Tables Rock Stars|
When it comes to times tables, speed and accuracy are important – the more facts your child remembers, the easier it is for them to do harder calculations.
Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help pupils master the times tables. To be a Times Table Rock Star you need to answer any multiplication fact up to 12×12 in less than 3 seconds!
All children in Years 1 - 6, have their own Times Tables Rock Star account.
