Number gym—work through the MUST, SHOULD and COULD challenges! Don’t move on until you are lightening fast! But, keep challenging yourself. Year 3 children should be pleased if they have completed the MUST and some may well have tried the COULD. Year 4 should work through MUST and SHOULD and some may have tried COULD. Year 5 children should be working well though the MUST and SHOULD and be working to achieve the COULD.

Year 3 —have a go at completing the x3, x4 and x6 times table in order in under 1min 30secs then move on to the 3 and 4 X tables in random/mixed order.

Year 4—be successful at the 3 , 4,6 and 9X tables in order and then have a go at them in random order.

Year 5—be successful at the 4, 6, 7 and 9X tables in order and then have a go at them in random order.

Remember – even if you know your number facts keep refreshing your brain so you don’t get rusty.
