28th January 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

As you may be aware, from June 2020 there is a new national statutory test for Y4 children called the ‘Multiplication Tables Check’ (MTC). The test will judge how well each child knows their multiplication tables up to 12 x 12, which is the expected standard by the end of Year 4.

The test will be administered in the summer term and will involve an online test of 25 multiplication questions. The results will then be shared with us to help us best support the children, as they progress through the Y5 and Y6 maths curriculum.

Key information regarding the test is attached, however I am also delivering a short meeting on Tuesday 4th February at 2:30pm, in the junior building hall to discuss the Multiplication Tables Check and how you can support your child at home.

If you are able to attend the meeting, can you indicate on the slip attached below and return to school as soon as possible, so I have an idea of numbers. The meeting will finish in time for school pick up. If you are unable to attend the meeting, the information will be put on the school website.

Thank you for your continual support.

Mrs McBrien
Assistant Headteacher
