Times Tables

The expectation is that by the end of Year 2, children should be fluent in (able to derive and recall) the 2, 5 and 10 times tables, including related number facts.


By the end of Year 3, children should be fluent in the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables.


At home, try and practise times tables for 5-10 minutes every day. You'll be amazed at the progress that can be made and how much it'll help improve in all areas of maths. Choose a list from the Maths Shed site using your login details.

KS2 Olympic Times Table Scheme


By the end of Year 3, the expectation is that most children should be on Gold (i.e. they have completed Going for Gold 2 twice).


The test paper will change weekly as it is randomly generated. Children will have 4 minutes to complete the test and will need to complete each level twice to move on. We will be testing the children weekly using the following site:


When practising at home, please use the table to choose the appropriate options for each test:

(1) Select times tables to test

(2) Choose x and ÷ options (times by and divide by) for type of questions to test.

(3) Number of questions to choose for each test.


Times Table Test x and ÷ options No. of Questions Times Tables to Test
Finalist 1 x only 24  2  5  10
Finalist 2  x and ÷ 24  2  5  10
Bronze x and ÷ 30  2  3  4  5  10
Silver x and ÷ 30  2  3  4  5  8  10

Olympic x and ÷ 95  2 - 12

Learning and Practising Times Tables

Multiplication tables check: a guide for parents

21 Number Facts

The principles behind this system are explained in the document below. In order to practise these facts, children complete the 21 Number Facts chart every day at school. This chart is available to print as a PDF from this class page so children can practise at home, preferably on a daily basis. It is not a “race” to finish it as quickly as possible. Children should be encouraged to “say in their heads” every number fact they are completing so that this learning is embedded. For instance, “seven times eight equals fifty six”, rather than simply writing an answer.

This short clip from Komodo Maths clearly explains the theories behind it all.
