Each week your child will be given a times table to practise in preparation for a weekly assessment on a Friday. This is the same format as their spelling assessment.
In this assessment children will be asked a mixture of times and division questions relating to that times tables e.g. 2 X 3 =, or 12 ÷ 3 =. To give the times tables a real-life context we will ask questions such as I have three five pence coins, how much money do I have in total.
We will repeat times tables over a number of weeks so please do not panic if your child is concerned about not knowing them all straight away.

To support them in this please ensure that they are using TTRS for an average of 3 minutes a day. There are also a number of fun songs on YouTube to help children remember the facts.
In school we also monitor children’s use of TTRS to provide support or challenge where needed. See link below.
The National Curriculum states that children in Year 3 must know their x2, x5, x10, x3, x4 and x8 tables by the end of the academic year.
