At Jubilee we aim to foster the resilience to become confident in developing mathematical skills and knowledge. By nurturing these skills, children can recognise that maths makes up the world around them and how to apply this knowledge in their everyday contexts.
Master of Tables
In our drive to develop a love for Maths and to improve our Maths skills even further at Jubilee, we introduced Master of Tables (MoT) to encourage children to learn their times tables off by heart. This has helped them in mental maths and in arithmetic work, whether in class or in assessment situations.
There are four stages: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
To become a Bronze Master of Tables, children have to know their 2, 5 and 10 x tables.
To become a Silver Master of Tables, children have to know their 3, 4, 6 and 7 x tables.
To become a Gold Master of Tables, children have to know their 8, 9, 11 and 12 x tables.
To become a Platinum Master of Tables, children have to apply all of these skills in different contexts.
Children have to know the times table facts and all inverses in random order and are expected to answer “quick fire” to encourage instant recall of multiplication and division facts. If successful, they are presented with a certificate for the level they have achieved and their photo is then put on the MoT display in our school hall to celebrate their success.
