Learn your times table to funky beats!

In year 1, 2, 3 and 4 children will be expected to practise their targeted times table toon (whatever times table they are working on in class) and play the related games E.g times table recall, musical chairs (random order times tables) and speed challenge games.

Years 5 & 6: (year 4 mid year onwards)
As well as practising their targeted times table, year 5 & 6 are expected to use Monster Multiplication. The monster changes from an egg to a monster as your child develops their times table knowledge.

It can be accessed in the maths area or in tools and your child’s class teacher can set ‘to-dos’ to be completed. The children will see these ‘to-do’ notifications in their alerts icon.

When your child clicks ‘let’s play’ they get 3 seconds to start the game and then have 1 minute to answer as many questions as possible. For each question they get right, the area goes green and food will drop into the monster’s mouth. If an incorrect answer is entered the area goes red.

Pupils in year 4 are working towards their times table test at the end of the year and will begin to access Purple Mash Monster Multiplication mid year so that they are accustomed to answering random times table questions up to the twelve times table.

In year 6 your child will receive additional arithmentic homework in the lead up to SATs.
