Learning Times Tables
Learning Times Tables is an important area of Maths for your children. Although we work on these in school, reinforcement at home is essential if the children are to become more confident in their use.
Knowing times tables provides children with an additional tool that they can use in many areas of maths, including fractions, decimals, percentages and ratio. They are useful in work in shape and using data.
Putting time pressure on children to answer very quickly can, however, cause anxiety for some and learning tables by rote can be very difficult for some children.
Games and songs are the best way to learn and little and often is best, focused on one table at a time.
Making links between tables is important, such as knowing the 8s is double the 4s, which is double the 2s etc.
Here are a further selection of games to play at home to support learning.
