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 in class. Below is a link to the place value game that children have been playing in class - it may be useful to play this game at home to increase your child's confidence with value and support their learning in class.
There are a variety of ideas on the internet! You could try typing 'fun ways to learn multiplication tables' or 'fun ways to learn place value' into a search engine. The key to learning times table facts is regular practice in short bursts. For example, on the way home, in the car, or when going up to bed.
