Achievement for all in a community that cares



Children in Year 2 are expected to know the multiplication facts in the 2x, 5x and 10x tables and the related division facts.  It is important that they know the facts off by heart as this will help them to carry out more complex mental calculations quickly.  Speed tests are a fun way of getting them to think quickly and improve their accuracy by trying to improve their score.  Rather than doing all the tests at once, try one or two a day and challenge your child to improve their score each time, or do a test and return to it a couple of days later to see if the score improves.
