This week, we will be practising our times table. This is also known as multiplication, multiplying, times or lots of.

This week, we would like you to log into Times Table Rockstars every day to practise your times tables. Remember, it might be tricky in the beginning, but the only way to get quicker and to improve is to keep trying! To access TT Rockstars, click here and enter your login information.


Can you count forwards in 2s, 5s and 10s? You need to be able to do this to work out your times tables. If you can't do this yet, you need to spend lots of time practising counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. Can you count backwards in 2s, 5s and 10s? Spend the week learning this!


We also need to learn to count in 3s. Watch the video below and see if you can join in. Spend the week learning how to count in 3s. Remember, it is adding 3 each time.

Remember, times tables are repeated addition. For example, 2 x 5 is the number 2, 5 times.

This means it is 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 

You can count each 2 (in 2s) to reach your answer. This will remind you how to answer times tables. Remember not to add the two numbers.


Look at the documents below. Aim to do the first two challenges and the third sheet as an extension, if you found the first 2 easy.


Look at the word problems and work out the times table sum to go with each one. Make sure you write the sum and the answer. Draw pictures to help you find the answer, if you need to. Complete the first 2 challenges and have a go at the third challenge if you want something tricky!


Reasoning is a really important part of Maths. This is when you explain why something makes sense or doesn't. It is about using words to explain your thinking and explain how or why you got to an answer. Start with challenges 1 and 2 and move onto challenge 3 if you need something more!


You must be really good at your times tables by now! You should be able to count in 2s, 5s and 10s confidently and use this to solve problems. Now we would like you to use this knowledge to complete the following activities. You will need to use your times tables but WATCH OUT. There might be some other sneaky symbols in there or you may need to do something other than multiplying to reach your answer. Start with challenges 1 and 2 before moving onto challenge 3 for an extension.
