In this chapter, pupils learn the 3, 4, 8, 50 and 100 times tables.
Pupils represent the 3, 4 and 8 times tables in a variety of ways, including through the use of equal grouping, arrays and number lines. They skip-count in 3s, 4s and 8s from 0. They also count forwards and backwards in 50s and 100s from any number and connect this with their knowledge of place value.
To ensure confident recall, pupils practise these tables regularly. They develop an understanding of the meaning of multiplication and division, using structures such as repeated addition and stretching for multiplication.
Once their understanding is secure, pupils use times tables facts to derive a variety of other multiplication and division facts. They use language such as “multiply”, “times” and “product” to communicate them.
