Times Tables

We are all learning our 2,  5  and 10 times tables, we need to learn these so that we can recall the facts instantly.

How to help your child learn their tables:

• If you know how to double, then you can multiply by 2, 4, and 8 or by 20, 40 or 80

• If you know your 3 times table, then you know your 6s. If you know your 4s you know your 8s

• If you learn one fact, then you know a second e.g. 2 x 5 is the same as 5 x 2, switch this around.

• If you know 3 x 2 = 6, then you know that 2 x 3 = 6, 6 ÷ 3 = 2 and that 6 ÷2 = 3, these are fact families.
