Times Tables

According to the National Curriculum, all pupils are expected to know all of their times tables, up to 12x12, by the end of Year 4.

To support children in school, we are following a 'Rainbow Times Table Challenge'. This scheme starts in Year 2 and continues to the end of Year 6. Through self-practice and weekly tests, the children move through the scheme at their own pace. Take a look below to see the order we teach the times tables.
