Learning your times tables is a very important part of numeracy and is a skill that helps your child to progress in many areas of the numeracy syllabus.
All children can earn certificates in numeracy for mastering each of their times tables, so understand the importance of knowing your times tables and keep on practising.
For children in year 2 and above are subscribed to Timestables Rockstars, a game that encourages children to practice their times tables and once they know them to increase their speed. Once children know the times tables for their year group, they are encouraged to take part in Hadrian’s Golden Pass. This is a timed times tables test and once children pass they receive a key ring that allows them to access special events throughout the year. These events have previously included milkshake parties, a sweet shop and a scooter afternoon.

Children can also earn certificates in numeracy for learning their number bonds to 10 and 20.
Children in Key Stage one and Foundation can earn a certificate by completing the Number Bond challenge. For example 2 + 8 = 10, 8 + 2 = 10 and so on. It will then be followed by number bonds to 20 and so on. We hope you will enjoy supporting your child in learning their number bonds, as this will help them in order to progress in their mental mathematics.
