  • Andrew Taylor (Senior Teaching and Learning Consultant-Primary)

Course Aims
• To identify the expectations for the Multiplication Tables Check in Year Four.
• To explore effective strategies for modelling the concepts of multiplication and division.
• To consider patterns in calculation across times tables and how these can support children with reasoning about unknown facts.
• To explore activities for practise, consolidation and application of multiplication tables facts.

In supporting children to succeed in the Multiplication Tables Check in Year 4, it is important that the focus is not on simply memorising facts, but rather on the connections between multiplication, division and reasoning about related facts. These strategies will support the deeper understanding, and therefore longer term retention, of multiplication facts.

This course will consider how to develop children’s deeper understanding, fluency and application of multiplication facts to enable them to be successful not only in the Multiplication Tables Check but also with their wider mathematical studies.
