Times Table Challenge:
Here are the Times Table Challenge Sheets! Ranging from the 2x table all the way to the 12x table.
Every Friday we had been doing the 2x table challenge in class, so all children will be familiar with this! If this is too easy, move onto the next one!
Children will be expected to know all times tables to 12 by Year 4, so we start learning in Year 1 with our 2s, 5s and 10s.
