Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check

Every year children in year 4 need to participate in a multiplication tables check, MTC. This is timetabled to take place in June.

Children have been learning times tables since year 2, when they learnt to recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables. In year 3 they continued this with the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables and in year 4 they are expected to know all of the times table facts up to 12 x 12 by the time they take the MTC.

Children have access to  TT Rockstars at home and are expected to practise their times tables as homework. In school the children will use government guided materials to prepare them nearer the time.

The check is an online test that takes about 5 minutes for most children to complete.
