Multiplication Tables Check
In June 2020, the new statutory Multiplication Tables check for Year 4 will be administered across the UK. This short course begins with looking at the documentation from the DFE into the MTC and any key points from schools trialing the materials in June 2019. During the morning the delegates will look at progression in multiplication and learning times table facts. There will be an opportunity to experience a large range of resources and games to use back in the classroom.
This is an active and hands on course. It is advisable to bring an iPad or camera phone with you to capture the various models and images and a memory stick should you require any bespoke electronic resources on the day from Liz.
At the end of the course, a pack of resources, including a pdf copy of the powerpoint mini slides handout will be available to download from www.dropbox.com
