By the end of year 4 all children are now expected to know their times tables up to 12x12 inside out! In school our teachers teach the children the big ideas behind the multiplication tables; we would like the children to practise their tables at home. Using a traffic light approach to becoming masters of our times tables helps us understand where the children are in learning their tables.
Red = reciting the table in the order they come in
Orange = being able to answer times tables in a different order
e.g. 3x 7 = , 4 x 8 =
Green = we give them a answer can they respond with multiplication and division facts
e.g. 35 – they say 7 x5, 5 x 7 , 35 ÷ 7, 35 ÷5.
We, of course, start with the easy tables first - the Easy Times Tables are the 10x, 2x and 5x times tables.
The 10x tables are a natural part of counting, the two times tables are familiar because of doubling, even numbers and they simply chant so well 2, 4, 6, 8, who do we appreciate. . . The 5x tables are helped by knowing the 10x tables and the fact that we have 5 fingers.
There's some debate as to which are easiest from here but the 4x, 9x are usually next. The 4x tables are double the 2x tables and the 9x tables have a few shortcuts to help you learn them. After this you could the 3x tables followed by the 6x tables. Then the 8x tables and the 7x tables - which are generally regarded as difficult.
Language and Times Tables
There are many different ways to say the tables and they're all correct - but it helps if you're consistent and if you adopt the language your child already uses at school. For example we have:
· three times eight is . . .
· three multiplied by
· three eights are . .
· three lots of eight are . .
Look out for the booklet your child is coming home with today for Top Tips for learning times tables.
