Pupils are regularly tested on their progression in learning their times tables at increasing levels of competence.
To join the ‘clubs’ and be awarded certificates, pupils will need to answer the test questions in 6 minutes ~ the number of questions to be answered corresponds with the club name:
‘11 club‘ ~ questions from the 2x table
‘22 club‘ and ‘33 club’ ~questions from 2x, 5x and 10x tables
’44 club’ and ’55 club’ ~ questions from 2x, 5x, 10x, 3x, 4x, 8x tables. Questions from 55 club on-wards include divisions based on the tables.
‘66, 77, 88 and 99 clubs‘ ~ questions from 2x to 12x tables.
For those that have completed 99 club we have the Bronze, Silver and Gold challenges.
To help your child learn their tables say them forwards and backwards with them in order e.g one two is two, two twos are four, three twos are six. Saying them in this way helps them answer division questions: how many twos in six? Two twos are six.
When they get confident ask them at random.
Remember 5 – 10 minutes a day is the best way to learn.
