A game that can be played in pairs, threes or independently. Please note that this game focuses on times tables facts from 2 to 10 to ensure children are confident in these tables before progressing to the 11s and 12s, which will need to be taught subsequently.

Children need a 'Table Splat' mat and counters (different coloured counters for each child). Children take turns to turn over a card, revealing a times tables question. The child who is the first to place their counter on the correct answer (whilst shouting 'SPLAT!') can leave their counter on the board. The winner is the player with the most counters on the board once all of the times table cards have been used.

Differentiate by choosing the multiplication cards relevant for that child, depending on which times table they are currently working on.

*Update: 6s and 9s have been underlined, to avoid confusion.*

    Using this with year 8 students who struggle with times tables, they keep wanting to play it now.

      Thank you for your review. As well as using this game as a classroom resource, I also use it for intervention work with children who are still learning their times tables and the children love it!
