Each week, we test timestables knowledge.
We do this by calling out "3 times your number," and the children - who all should know what timestables they are on, write just the answer in their books. We do them out of order and use different terminology for 'multiply.'
4 multiplied by your number
7 times your number
the product of 12 and your number
6 multiplied by your number
all mean times.
We give 6 seconds for each question from the second we stop asking the question, then we move on.
If they miss any out, we do not repeat it.
As we include 0 times their number, we then do a total out of 13.
Here is the order of timestables they should learn in:
2, 5, 10; 3, 4, 8; 6, 9, 12, 7, 11.
After they have finished learning all their timestables, we move them onto mixed tables where they fill in a grid.
