Y4, children are required to take the Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) at the end of the year. The dates for this year are between the 5th and 19th of June 2023. A good way to prepare is start early and build a daily routine practising the times tables. With regular practise children will learn all the questions and gain confidence. Research suggests that practising for 10 to 15 minutes a day will provide optimal results.

We will be doing lots of practice in school, however, if you would like your child to have extra practise at home they will have their Times Tables Rockstars username and password readily available to use on - https://play.ttrockstars.com/
The Mathsframe timestables check is set up in a very similar way to the MTC, it is free to access and can be found by clicking on the link below.
Homework will be set online on a Friday and will need to be completed by Wednesday.
Project homework and knowledge organisers will be available to view every term on this webpage.
