Our vision for mathematics

We want all pupils at St White’s Primary School to see themselves as mathematicians and to

  • have a positive ‘can do’ attitude towards the learning of mathematics and an enjoyment of the challenges posed by maths;
  • commit to developing a fluency in the different aspects of mathematics and take responsibility for applying their learning in different contexts;
  • develop their ability to conquer problems through decision making and communicate clearly their reasoning in a range of contexts;
  • reflect on the mathematical skills and confidence they will need in order to succeed in school and everyday life and celebrate as they gain these.

Times Tables


To support the children in their mathematics, we develop their recall of their multiplication tables. Here are the multiplication tables that need to be learned to meet the National Curriculum expectations:

By the end of Y4, all children should be able to rapidly recall all their multiplication tables up to 12 x 12.

Year group expectations are as follows:

By the end of Y2, children should know the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables.
By the end of Y3, children should also know the 3, 4 and 5 multiplication tables.
By the end of Y4, children should also know the 6, 7, 9, 11 and 12 multiplication tables.

For parents who want to encourage their children to improve their tables, the school offers TT Rock Stars and logins are available to all pupils. This is an engaging online game which allows children to enjoy improving their times tables knowledge and the school encourages its use. You will know when they 'know their tables' because they will be able to give you the answer to a calculation like 3x4 without thinking or using their fingers!
