Year 4 Multiplication Check

In Year 4, the children take part in a national multiplication check. The purpose is to make sure that children can fluently recall their times tables up to 12. It is all done online – the children have up to 6 seconds to answer 25 mixed questions. On average, the check should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete.

The data is used to make sure that children struggling with their times tables are identified and get the support they need. We will share your child’s score with you, however there is no pass mark.

 

At Katesgrove, we complete the check on iPads in small groups. We practice using various apps and websites in school regularly so that children are used to the format. The check will take place between Monday 6th June and Friday 24th June.

 

How can I help at home?

The following websites have practice multiplication checks that you can use at home:

 

TTRockstars (login using details in the front of reading records)

There is a ‘sound check’ which is a practice multiplication check but you can also practice times tables that you might find trickier, as well as play in challenges against friends.

 

URBrainy

A free website where you can practice the multiplication check.

 

Education City (login using details in the front of reading records)
