Times Tables

The quick recall of multiplication and division facts (times tables) is essential for all children. The ability to recall these facts quickly enables children to answer related questions with ease.

 

It is therefore important that we approach the teaching and testing of times tables in a similar and progressive format from Year 2 to Year 6.

 

According to the new National Curriculum 2014 the expectation of times tables in each Year Group is as follows:

 

Year 2: 2x, 5x, 10x

 

Year 3: 3x, 4x, 8x

 

Year 4: 6x, 7x, 9x, 11x, 12x

 

Year 5: All x and ÷ facts (12x12)

 

Year 6: All x and ÷ facts (12x12) and related language/symbols e.g. % and square root

 

The complete set of weekly times tables is given below. If you would like to practise these at home, open the file, press F9 to generate a new test and then print. In this way you can generate an unlimited number of different tests for each area of learning.

 

Please note - these tests are designed to test times tables knowledge, rather than to teach it. There are many ways in which children can learn times tables - for example, playing games, quick-fire questions from an adult, chanting tables, writing the tables out and using songs, websites or apps. This learning needs to take place before the knowledge gained can be assessed in a test.

 

The tests are given in the following order. Remember to press F9 once the file is open to generate a new test, and then print the page. The tests are not designed to be filled in electronically on your computer - they are to be printed out and filled in with a pencil.
