:: Preparing for the multiplication tables check ::
With the multiplication tables check (MTC) having its national voluntary pilot this academic year and full roll out next academic year (2019-2020), many schools are considering how to ensure that their Year 4 pupils will be ready for the assessment. The DfE states: ‘The purpose of the MTC is to determine whether Year 4 pupils can fluently recall their multiplication tables.’ Now that the framework has been released by the DfE, we are clearer about the content and style of this new assessment, but do we know how to prepare our staff and pupils, so that they are ready to perform at their best? This half-day course is a brief chance to consider what schools can do to feel ready for this new assessment, coming soon to Year 4 classrooms.
By attending the course, participants will:
  • check they understand the content of MTC assessment framework, recently released by the DfE
  • know how to take part in the national voluntary pilot, this academic year, should they choose to do so
  • try out an assessment which simulates the style and timings of the MTC, to help consider implications for pupils in their own school
  • consider how children learn multiplication tables facts, particularly focusing on lower Key Stage 2 and developing fluent recall
  • try out teaching ideas, activities and games aimed at strengthening pupils’ fluent recall
Suitable for:
  • Assessment Coordinators
  • Classroom Teachers
  • Deputy Headteachers
  • Headteachers
