Once our children reach year 4, they will be having an important test on times tables.
During year 3, it is vital that we are securing our knowledge.
All the children have a log in for Times Tables Rock stars which is an interactive website where they can practice. Here there is also a test available that is like the one they will have in Year 4.

By the end of year 3 children need to know 3, 4 and 8 times tables as well as 2, 5 and 10 previously secured in KS1.
Some ways to help our children learn...
Chanting - in year 3 we sing... "Augustine's children good as gold let me see your fingers roll the 3s." Or any other times tables they need to know.
Online games - Times tables Rock stars and other websites.
Songs - learn some songs, there are plenty available online.
Related facts - If I know that 4 x 4 = 8, I also know that 8 x 4 = 16. We just need to double.
