Multiplication Tables Check

What is the Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) ?

The Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check (MTC), is an annual check to see if Year 4 pupils in England and Wales have a good level of times tables knowledge. Under the current National Curriculum, children are expected to know their times tables by the end of Year 4. The purpose of the check is to determine whether Year 4 pupils can fluently recall their multiplication tables and to help schools to identify pupils who require additional support. There is no pass rate or threshold. The DfE will create a report on overall results across all schools in England to measure improvements.

How can I help my child?

Times tables are learnt best when learnt regularly and in short bursts. At Round Hill, we use 'Times Tables Rock Stars' to help learn multiplication and division tables. This interactive tool is a fun way of learning times tables facts as well as being highly addictive! The children are able to play against their friends and teachers.

The 'Sound Check' area of the website has been designed specifically in order to support the Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check.
