Year 4 National Times tables check

In June 2020, the new year 4 multiplication tables check will become statutory. Your child will need to take a short online test to make sure their times tables knowledge is at the expected level.

The multiplication tables check is an online test for pupils in Year 4. Pupils are asked to answer 25 questions on times tables from 2 to 12.  They are given six seconds per question, with three seconds rest between each question, so the test should last less than five minutes.

Questions about the six, seven, eight, nine, and 12 times tables are likely to come up most often as these are the hardest for most children to learn. It’s a good idea to focus on these tricky times tables with your child.

Please encourage your child to log in on the TIMES TABLES ROCK STARS game and practise as much as possible.
