Year 4 timetables check - government introduction
The purpose of the MTC is to determine whether pupils can recall their times tables fluently, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will help schools to identify pupils who have not yet mastered their times tables, so that additional support can be provided.
This year, the children in Year 4 will be doing their timetable's check but the results won't be published due to COVID. The children will be doing their timetable check the week beginning Monday 14th June.
We recommend that the children practise at home with songs, chants, online games including TT Rockstars and Hit the Button.
The checks are nothing to worry about but if you do have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact your child's class teacher.
