Have a go at the following multiplication race track challenge. Put the times table that you want to practise in the middle (2,3,5,or 10) and see how quickly you can move around the race track. Can you beat your time if you do it again?

Challenge: Do you know your 4 and 8 times tables ready for Year 3? 

Challenge 2

Can you complete this problem solve?


Look at the following number cards. How many different multiplication and division sentences can you make with them? Can you use the inverse? (swap it around)


4 x 5 = 20

5 x 4 = 20

Write each number in the centre of a piece of paper and write all your addition and subtraction ideas around it. Can you come up with a system to record your ideas? If you are making 100, can you challenge yourself rather than just using the tens numbers?


88 + 12 = 100

79 + 21 = 100

Times Tables

In Year 2, the children have continued to practise their 2, 5, and 10 times tables and have also learnt their 3 times tables. In the link below, Oxford Owl have produced many games to play and 'how to' videos to support your child to practise these times tables at home. Please make sure your child is confident in counting in the steps of that number forwards AND backwards (e.g. 0, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15 etc) before you try questions like 3 groups of 5 or 3 x 5. They need to know these times tables forwards, backwards and upside down before they get to Year 3. If you feel your child does know them forwards backwards AND upside down, in Year 3 they will learn to count in steps of 4 and 8.

Some other ways to learn your times tables.

Here are just a couple of videos - there are hundreds online. You can help your child find ones that they love and help them remember most easily.

Handy Hints for grown ups (from Oxford Owl)

While it may seem tedious to practise times tables with your child and you might have bad memories of reciting times tables at school, by ensuring your child is confident with times tables you will be giving them some essential tools for success in maths.

Our times tables top tips will provide some useful advice and great ideas to help you support your child in learning their times tables.

1. Practise tables as a time-filler

When you’re sitting at traffic lights or waiting in the doctor’s surgery it is the perfect opportunity for a bit of times table practice! It’s always better (for both your child and you!) to just spend a few minutes reciting or testing times tables rather than going into overdrive and spending too long practising them.

2. Help them with the ones they find tricky

There are usually one or two multiplication facts in each times table that are more difficult. When you notice that your child is stumbling over the same fact each time, try to give them extra practice. You could even get your child to write the fact out in a fun way on a piece of card and then stick it somewhere prominent (like on the fridge) so that they have an extra reminder!

3. Use a number grid

Printing off a simple 10 x 10 number grid can be a great way to demonstrate how times tables relate to number sequences. You can get your child to colour in multiples of different numbers on different number squares so that they can clearly see the number patterns.

4. Make it real

The danger with too much rote learning of times tables is that children can fail to see the use of times tables in real life. Try to take opportunities to get your child to use multiplication in problem solving, for example working out quantities for scaling up a recipe, or calculating the price of more than one item of shopping.

5. Create a challenge

Make it fun by turning times table practice into a competition or challenge for your child, by timing them and keeping a record of their scores.
