How can you help your child prepare for this test.

Information for parents concerning the MTC 2022

How Can You Help At Home?

We use TTRS app and website at school. Teachers set the tables that the children are working on and children can use Sound Check to test their skills. This also gives children 6 seconds to answer the question. Your child should have their login for this.

  • Times tables chanting: “6, 12, 18, 24…”;
  • Times tables chanting in reverse order: “108, 99, 90, 81…”;
  • Using times tables songs, like Schoolhouse Rock’s ‘3 is A Magic Number’;
  • Using apps – our favourites are Times Tables Rock Stars or Hit the Button
  • Asking your child multiplication calculations out of order, like: “What is 4 x 7? What is 9 x 5? What is 6 x 11?”;
  • Using pasta pieces or pebbles to show groups of numbers representing times tables, e.g. four groups of three pasta shells to show 3 x 4 = 12;
Times Tables You Can Do With Your Child
  • Asking your child related short division questions, like “What is 12 divided by 4? What is 55 divided by 11?”;
  • Asking your child word problems based on times tables, like: “If five friends have £3 each, how much money do they have in total?”;
  • Make practising times tables fun and a little bit competitive with these times tables games;
  • Trying out active ways of learning times tables, like our times tables practice ideas with pavement chalk:
