Times Tables

A good knowledge of times tables (including the division facts) really helps the children as they follow our maths curriculum. We teach our children multiplying and division facts and have an established programme. We start with counting in 2s and follow the sequence below.


  • x2, x5 and x10
  • x3, x4 and x6
  • x7, x8 and x9
  • all tables up to x12


Our children work their way through a tricky times table challenge. As they get a better understanding of their tables they can achieve their bronze award, before moving onto silver, gold, platinum and, eventually, diamond.


It's not an easy task though. To get their certificate and badge children have to pass three tricky tests consecutively without a single mistake...


You can see some examples of the times tables challenges below which you can use at home.
