Online Y4 times table test

During 2019/2020, the Government trialled an online times table test for all Year 4 children. Some of our pupils took the test. 

Supposedly, from 2020 onwards, the test is statutory. It has to be taken during a three week period. As one of those weeks is our 'Low Mill/Outdoor Activity' week, we will either choose a time in the week before or the week after, for your child to take the test. 

It looks similar to 'Time Table Rockstar' and is simply 25 times table questions flashed up onto a screen, and the children have several seconds to work out the answer and type it in.
