Times Tables

It is really important that children learn their multiplication facts up to 12x12. Without the basic understanding of multiplication facts and the ability to recall these quickly, children face a huge challenge to understand the depth of operations being taught throughout the KS2 curriculum.

Fluency of multiplication facts is a strong determiner of future success in mathematics. Those children who can recall their multiplication and division facts have a stronger grasp of more complex mathematical concepts. Memorising multiplication facts will help children have a quicker recall and develop mathematical fluency. Children can then move away from relying on their fingers or other manipulatives to help them.
