Webinar Runtime: 61 Minutes
From June 2020, it will be mandatory for all primary schools to administer an online multiplication tables check (MTC) to year 4 pupils. The main purpose is to establish whether pupils can recall their times tables fluently and help schools identify where further help may be required.
Mastering times tables is a vital skill that all children must learn before they enter secondary school. However, teaching times tables well and robustly, as well as trying to make it fun and engaging at the same time, is challenge that resonates well with many schools.
In this webinar, Mark Avis, a mathematics specialist with over 30 years’ teaching and leadership experience, will provide primary school headteachers, school leaders and maths leads with a framework and rationale for the development of children’s learning of multiplication facts and their confident use of times tables in the longer term.
