‘Speedy Tables’

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

Starting on Monday, we are all taking part in a ‘Speedy Tables Challange’ right up until the end of the year. This week  upper school are doing 4’s and 5’s and lower school are doing 2’s and 3’s. The following week we will change the times tables and all classes will be competing with each other (to see which class has improved the most). We will have 4  minutes in total to complete both tables. Hopefully this will help everyone in school improve on their tables right up to 12 times 12.
