Spring Term Skills Practice Focus: Tables - multiplication and division facts.
This term our maths focus in Kingfisher Class is tables. We assessed their recall at the end of the Autumn Term prior to the commencement of a unit on multiplication and division. Check your child's Skills Practice Book to find out the tables they need to focus on first. We will test them again towards the end of the Spring Term.
As a rough guide, year 2 children should be able to recall multiplication facts in the 2, 5 and 10 times table in and out of order as well as related division facts. Year 3 children should be able to recall those tables listed for year 2 children as well as facts in the 3, 4 and 8 times table, including related division facts.
