SUMMARY:TT0111 Times Tables with Fiona Goddard
DESCRIPTION: \;
In response to the Government's 'Primary Assessmen
t in England' consultation\, it is their intention to introduce an online
multiplication tables check to be taken by pupils at the end of year 4 fro
m the 2019 to 2020 academic year. \; To this end\, we have asked Fiona
Goddard from NCETM to put together a programme to enable us to address th
is change:
12 x 12
Each multiplication table has its own pattern and p
oses a different challenge to learners.
This half day course looks at th
e best ways to teach and learn times tables\, offering practical strategie
s and ideas to help your pupils learn each times table and boost their con
fidence with multiplication.
A \;recurring theme across Mathematics
teaching in primary schools is the lack of instant recall of times tables
and multiplication. If this isn&rsquo\;t embedded early in KS2\, by Year 4
for example\, Year 6 teachers can find themselves with the additional cha
llenge of developing instant recall that pupils should have been practisin
g for 2 years.
The Government now expects children in Primary schools to
be strong in their learning of times tables \;so that they can make g
ood progress in maths. \;It was announced by the Education Secretary\
, Nicky Morgan that every pupil will be expected to know their times table
s up to 12 x 12 by the end of primary school (3 January 2016). \;As p
art of the \;government&rsquo\;s commitment to giving every child
\;a quality education\, all children will have their times tables checked
in year 6 and this new testing will start from Spring 2019! This has been
updated and schools will now be expected to administer the tests to their
year 4 pupils from 2019-20 (Sept 2017).
What do we know so far&hellip\;
National Curriculum expects pupils by the end of year 4 to &lsquo\;re
call multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12
×\; 12&rsquo\;
Our current Year 2 pupils will sit the times table t
est in Year 4
the test is accessed online &mdash\; in a bid to reduce t
eacher workload.
the test will cover times tables up to 12×\;12
t
he test will be timed and scored instantly
These checks are to &ldquo\;a
id children&rsquo\;s fluency in mathematics&rdquo\;\, a DfE press release
said.
Pupils need to be able to recall any times tables answer within
two or three seconds. That leaves no time for counting the way up to the
answer from 2x\, 3x\, 4x and so on - the answer must pop out of the memory
pretty much instantly. It sounds harsh but this level of \"number fluency
\" is the ideal foundation for any child \;- so how do we get there?
Come and join us for half a day exploring different ways to teach and le
arn times tables.
