Dear Parents / Carers,
As you know the National Multiplication test at the end of Year Four is completed on a timed basis. The children have 6 seconds to complete each question, so it is imperative that they work on their recall speed, as well as their knowledge of times tables facts.
On the tests that the children bring home, I may note if it is strategies or speed that your child needs to work on. Please be reassured that your child is being supported on these aspects in school too.
To support their progression, please can you encourage your child to go on Times Tables Rockstars or Hit the Button for 5 minutes everyday.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for your support.
