Before beginning the year 5 class it is essential that you know your tables up to 10×10 to be able to access the work. If you are finding learning tables difficult I suggest you follow this programme:
1 Begin with the two times tables and every day say them out loud and IN ORDER (do this with someone else if it helps).
2 Once you know them very well ADD the three times tables. Everyday say the two and three times tables out loud and in order.
3 Once you know the twos and threes well ADD the four times tables. Everyday say the two, three and four times tables out loud and in order.
3 Continue this pattern adding one extra times table until everyday you say out loud the two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine and ten times tables in order.
4 Keep on saying them out loud until you know them all very well and can recall them quickly.
You can use the tests below if it helps.
At the end there is a random tables test that you can use once you are fully confident you know all your tables.
