At Grove Primary School and Nursery we will use Abacus as our Mathematics scheme to ensure continuity and progression.

Times Tables

With the National Curriculum changes in 2014 and new statutory assessments being implemented in Year 4 2019, there are greater demands on children knowing and being secure in their multiplication and division facts up to 12 x 12.

Every week, the children take part in Frog Club, where time is provided for the children to test their multiplication tables and division facts in a fun and engaging way through pledging their allegiance, singing the school song and by answering a range of questions in a five minute deadline. All classes celebrate their achievement and progress by hopping onto their next lily pad and receiving a sticker to celebrate success.

During the week, the children have regular time to practice, in a fun and engaging way through rapid questioning, singing songs and use of ICT in our computer suite and Ipads to increase not only accuracy of recall, but also speed.
