​By the end of Year 4, children are expected to know their timestables up to 12 x 12. Please help your child by ensuring they practise their tables regularly at home. Chanting, singing songs and writing them down are all good ways of learning tables. A good knowldeg e of tables will help your child in most areas of their Maths work, especially fractions. 

​​Please try the websites below.  It​ is    organised into different age levels (tabs at the top) and then into different topics.

 Most games have a variety of levels so you can choose the one that suits.

Playing games is the best way to help your child learn their table facts by heart.
