Mathletes will now be the next step once children have completed all of the rocket maths sections. By the end of year 2 children are expected to quickly recall their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables. These skills are vital in many maths activities and quick recall of these facts can really improve your child's maths in general. Mathletes is a way to support the development of these skills.
Our mathletes sheets will be random every week but will focus on the same number facts that relate to your child’s personal target. Targets sheets will be randomly generated by this site:
This means that every week the question sheet will be different. Your child will bring home their marked sheet each week but the questions will be in a different order the week after.Your child will need to complete each sheet in 3 minutes to show that they can quickly remember each fact. When we feel they are ready and are secure with the facts on their sheet they will move on to the next set.
Finalist – 2x, 5x, 10x
Bronze – 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x
Silver – 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 8x, 10x
Please encourage your children to practise these facts at home as regularly as possible. There are some examples of the times tables sheets above.There are also some games to support these skills in the 'Maths Targets' and 'Maths at Home' sections of our class page.
