The homework this week is ‘Practice Makes Perfect’ and they will be tested on it on Wednesday 11th May.
I can learn a new times table.
This is a great chance for your child to learn a whole new times table. They should know their 2x table, 5x table and 10x table so make sure they know these before you move on to any other times tables. Here a few ideas for how they could learn a new times table.
- They could repeat them out loud. You have to be sure that they can do the times tables out of order as well. For example, being able to do 7 x 3 without going through the whole table (3,6,9 etc).
- Give them a times table list to memorise. See if they can write the whole times table out. Similar to how they practise spellings, but once again, make sure they can do them in any order.
- Times Table Tennis. You start at any number in the times table and they have to say the next two in the sequence going upwards and downwards.
Then, play these fun games to see if they’ve got it!
