Securing Key Number Facts
Parent Leaflet (Autumn 2019)
This leaflet has been written for Year 4 parents but will hopefully be useful to Year 2 and 3 parents as well as any parents of children in Years 5 and 6 who have still not yet mastered fluent recall of their times tables facts.
The leaflet gives some information about the Year 4 MTC (Multiplication Tables Check) as well as key information about learning times tables facts.
Copies of the leaflet have been sent home with children but if printing yourself, please note that the leaflet is designed to be printed on two-sides of an A4 page and then folded.

Times Tables ‘Facts Tracker’
This resource was highlighted in our workshop. If children are confident multiplying by 0, 1 and 10, then this useful tracker reveals that only another 19 facts need to be learnt during Yr 2! As there are 190 school days in each academic year, this allows for the deep and secure learning of a single fact every 10 days. As you’ll also see, it’s just 21 more facts for Yr 3 children to learn and a further 15 for Yr 4s to learn before their entire tables are mastered!

Times Tables Print Outs
These sheets represent each set of facts visually and, therefore, help children to see what each actually means (as well as the relationship between different facts)
