Useful Websites


Below is a list of websites that may be useful when practicing times tables and place value.


When practicing times tables, as well as the websites above, you could play games, sing songs, make up rhymes, or use flash cards. Remember that children should be able to recall facts out of order without working up from 1 x something.


We are currently learning about place value and number sequencing in class. Below is a link to the place value and number sequencing games that the children have been playing in class - it may be useful to play these games at home to increase your child's confidence with value and support their learning in class. 


There key to learning times tables is regular practice in short bursts. For example on the way home or when going up to bed.
