Number facts and Timestables

Learning addition and multiplication facts is a vital part of any child’s mathematical development. Once rapid recall of these facts becomes possible, a whole host of mathematical activities will seem easier. Children need to be able to recall addition and multiplication facts in any order and also to derive associated subtraction and division facts. The expectations for each year group are set out below:
Year 1 and 2: Addition facts to 20 and x10, x5 and x2 tables.
Year 3: x3, x4 and x9 tables.
Year 4: x6, x7, x8 tables.
Year 5 and 6: All multiplication, and associated, division facts.

By the end of Year 4, pupils should have memorised their multiplication tables up to and including the 12 multiplication table and show precision and fluency in their work.
