Our PE lesson takes place on Fridays with Mr Foster, so please remember to wear PE kit to school every Friday. As the weather gets colder, this will include a tracksuit to keep warm. You might also want to pop a spare pair of socks in the school bag in case of soggy feet!

Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check (MTC)

The MTC is a statutory on-screen test that takes place for Year 4 pupils in June. Children use an iPad to answer 25  times table questions up to 12 x 12. They have 6 seconds to answer each question. The check should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete.


The suggested practice schedule below has been developed by the people at TTRS to maximise practice time at home and in class. Please don't hesitate to ask one of us if you have any questions relating to the MTC.
