In Year 5 our maths curriculum focuses on investigating and problem solving. To help with this, our homework is based on mental maths facts such as times tables.
Good knoweldge and understanding of mental maths facts are vital in order to succeed in maths. To help with this, the children are practising their times tables and have individual tests and support in class every week. Children are expected to practise the times tables they are working on at home as well. Here are some links to some good games they can play to practise them:
