Maths Milkshake Cafe
As an incentive for learning our times tables we have a new club starting. Once a month we have Maths Milkshake Cafe for children who have learned a set of times tables.
After a test and agreement from their teacher they can attend the cafe and enjoy a refreshing milk shake and a game of times table bingo for prizes.
Knowing your times tables is very important. We don't always realise how much we use times tables in everyday life.
Learning basic times tables will make it easier to learn more challenging ones – for example if children know their 3 times tables, they will be able to work out their 6 times tables by doubling the answer.
This is just to mention a few reasons why we should all know times tables.
In school we use Times Table Rock Stars and Hit the Button to practice as well as doing rapid recall in class and practicing them for homework.
