Every Friday we will be having a mental arithmetic lesson. This means we will be answering maths questions, but not using anything to help us. No tens and units, no hundred square, not even any counters… just your brain!
At first you might not get all the questions right, but it is important to practise every week and even at home to improve your mental maths skills. When we first started learning our times tables they are very tricky, but now I know lots of you can do your 2x, Â 5x , 10x Â and even some children know their 3 times tables as well.
Here are some games that you can play to practise your skills.
