Doodlemaths has been launched last term and children will need to complete their dailies every day. This will provide each child with a personalised programme of 5 short questions a day. In the front of their partnership book we will put their login details. DoodleMaths has a times table appa s well, to allow with speed and proficiency.

During parent's evening I was asked to identify some activities to help children learn their tables. I have identified a few games and websites that might suit you and your children - enjoy!!
Games to help learn your tables:
Super fingers This is a game for two players. This is played like ‘rock, paper, scissors’ but with numbers. Two players count to 3 and then make a number using their fingers. Both players then have to multiply both numbers together. The one who says the answer quickest is the winner.
Multiplication Snap You will need a pack of cards for this game. Flip over the cards as if you are playing snap. The first person to say the fact based on the cards turned over (a 2 and a 3 = 6) gets the cards. The person who has the most cards at the end is the winner.
Rhyme time Silly rhymes can help children to learn tricky times tables facts e.g. 8 x 8 = 64 He ate and ate and was sick on the floor, eight times eight is 64. 7 x 7 = 49 Seven times seven is like a rhyme, it all adds up to 49. You will find more rhymes like this at multiplication.com.
Bingo This game will need two players. Make a grid of six squares on a piece of paper and ask your child to write a number in each square from their target tables. Give them a question and if they have the answer they can cross it off. The first person to mark all their numbers off is the winner.
