The Mighty Multiples Times Table Challenge is a whole-school, multi-sensory approach to learning the times tables, which will appeal to all children. Through using this scheme, pupils will gain fluency and be able to recall and apply their knowledge of the times tables rapidly and accurately.
Kinaesthetic activities form a central part of the scheme. Through doing activities such as finding the 3x table pathway across the playground or participating in a long jump multiplication challenge, children will develop a firm concrete understanding of the multiplication tables.
Visual resources such as visual grouping sheets, number fans, 144 board and bingo games will help them to visualise the times tables pictorially and develop mental pictures. Pupils will love the sporty characters associated with each times table.
Pupils will love listening to and singing along with the songs and poems on the CD. These catchy songs and poems are fun to learn and will help pupils to recall their times tables rapidly.
Problem solving is integral to Mighty Multiples, giving children practice using and applying their times tables in real life situations.
The Mighty Multiples Times Table Challenge works best as a whole-school scheme. Present the in-built motivational rewards at assemblies and watch pupils strive to achieve their Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum Awards. The scheme starts with number stories, so even reception children can be involved.
Tip sheets for parents give ideas for practising times tables at the park or in the car, ensuring that learning the times tables fun for the whole family!
