Last time, we focused on how to teach times tables. Now we are going to look at different ways to make learning them as fun and engaging as possible:
Times tables play an important part in Numeracy. They are needed across the Numeracy curriculum from fractions to chunking, to multiplication and beyond. I’ve seen children who are confident with a method, for example chunking, but have got the wrong answer simply because they do not know their tables. Helping children to feel secure with their times tables can really help to increase confidence in Numeracy.
