The Multiplication Tables Check: The multiplication tables check (MTC) is statutory for primary schools. The purpose of the MTC is to check whether children can recall their times tables fluenty, as this is essential for future success in maths. It is an on-screen check consisting of 25 times tables questions. Children will be able to answer 3 practice questions before taking the actual check and they will then have 6 seconds to answer each question. 

The MTC will take place in June 2023. 

Children are regularly playing Times Tables Rockstars at school and it is expected that they play at home for 10 minutes per day. 

If you have any questions about the MTC, please feel free to contact me although more information will be shared after Christmas.
