Preparing for the Statutory Multiplication Tables Check

Now that the Multiplication Tables Check is statutory many schools are considering how to ensure their Year 4 pupils will be ready for the assessment by June 2020. The DfE states: ‘The purpose of the MTC is to determine whether Year 4 pupils can fluently recall their multiplication tables.’ Following the voluntary pilot last academic year we are clearer about the content and style of this new assessment, but do we know how to prepare our staff and pupils so that they are ready to perform at their best? What are the best ways to help pupils to secure their multiplication tables knowledge? This half-day course is a brief chance to consider what schools can do to feel ready for this new assessment.

Who should attend?

Year 4 teachers.

Course objectives

  • To check staff understand the scope and structure of the Multiplication Tables Check assessment ahead of the roll out in June 2020.
  • To consider both school level preparations (IT requirements) and class considerations (including access arrangements) and draws on the experiences of schools participating in the national voluntary pilot in June 2019.
  • To consider how children learn multiplication tables facts, particularly focusing on lower Key Stage 2 and developing fluent recall.
  • To try out teaching ideas, activities and games aimed at strengthening pupils’ fluent recall.
