Number Facts and Times Tables

Learning maths facts is a vital part of a 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 tables to x12, and associated, division facts.

By the end of Year 4, pupils should have memorised their multiplication tables up to and including the x12 multiplication table and show precision and fluency in their work.
