Statutory multiplication tables check (MTC)

In Y4 children will be required to participate in a statutory multiplication tables check (MTC).

The purpose of the MTC is to determine whether pupils can recall their times tables fluently, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will help schools to identify pupils who have not yet mastered their times tables, so that additional support can be provided.

We will have a 3-week check window in June to administer the MTC.

Please find the link to Maths Frame Multiplication Check - this activity exactly mirrors the 'Multiplication Tables Check' that will be given to the children in June. 

Class Information:


Class 3 will go swimming at Peterchurch School every Monday afternoon  during the Autumn 1 term from Mon 11th Sept

PE and Forest School:

For the Autumn 1 term Class 3 will have PE on Friday afternoons only. This is because the children will go swimming every Monday morning and this counts as one of their PE lessons for the term. Forest School is every other Thursday and will alternate with RE. On Forest School days children will get changed in school - please can children bring in old, warm clothes suitable to be outside in all weathers. 


We do appreciate that the children have a very busy day at school and many of them do other activities after school. We would therefore just like your support with helping your child to:-

  • learn their weekly spellings (test on Friday);
  • practise their tables (test on Friday)
  • encourage them to read and complete reading diary
  • and to read to them (this enables them to extend their vocabulary beyond their reading capabilities, listen to some amazing stories and a great excuse to sit somewhere cosy for 10 minutes together!).

5-10 minutes a day is better than all in one go and more beneficial. We have made some times tables games this week which the children could make at home and play with you or by themselves. There are lots of games on-line too! The pupils all have a Rockstars password and we also like playing Hit The Button (Topmarks website) in school. Please mail admin if you would like paper copies of Rockstars for your child to bring home to practise.

There might be the occasional request for a piece of research or a task for a topic but I will do my very best to give parents and carers as much advance notice as possible! 

I am in school every day and available for a quick chat most afternoons. If it is something that might take longer, please email admin or go to the office to make an appointment.

Thank you for all your support!
