Multiplication Times Tables Check

Multiplication Tables Check (MTC)

Parent Information Video -

From June 2020, a new  Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) will become statutory for our Year 4 children.

The purpose of the MTC is to determine whether Year 4 pupils can fluently recall their multiplication tables.

The MTC is focused on the fluent recall of multiplication facts. This is included in the national curriculum (2014) statutory programme of study for mathematics at Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. The national curriculum states, ‘By the end of year 4, pupils should have memorised their multiplication tables up to and including the 12 multiplication table and show precision and fluency in their work’.

The MTC will be delivered as an online, on-screen digital assessment and will take each pupil less than 5 minutes to complete. 

How can I help my child:

Times tables are learnt best when learnt regularly and in short bursts. Here at Woodlands Primary School we use Time Tables Rock Stars as an online and paper support. You will find your child's login details in the front cover of their reading diaries. If you are unsure, please ask your child's class teacher. There are many other ways children can be supported however.
