Times tables


We are in the process of compiling a list of useful websites/apps for times tables, as we would like to raise the profile in Year 5. More will be added as we receive recommendations from pupils, teachers and parents.


At the moment we would recommend:


Hit the Button - this is a free web based game for all levels of multiplication and division. 

Sumdog - this is a free web based game that requires a parent to set it up with a simple free account.


You can play and learn at the same time - even if it's just 5 minutes before school!
