When do children begin to learn Tables?
Addition and Take Away Tables are taught in 1st and 2nd class.
It is school policy that Tables to 6 are taught in 1st class.
The class teacher revises these in 2nd and then the children continue to
learn Tables up to adding and taking away 11 and 12.
1st/2nd Class provide ‘a window of opportunity’ to learn
addition/subtraction Tables. It is important to master these Tables by the
end of 2nd because
• in 3rd and 4th the focus changes to multiplication and division.
• if a child knows their simple number facts then they can give their
full attention to methodology when being taught new maths
What Tables are learnt in 3rd and 4th?
Multiplication/Division taught in 3rd and 4th
What about Tables in 5th and 6th?
Regular revision of Tables is part of the 5th and 6th class programme.
Teachers can teach the Tables, but children have to learn them. Even
though teachers introduce Tables from 1st class, teachers of 5th and 6th
find they are teaching Tables that should have been learnt earlier in a
child’s schooling. So let’s make this the year that tables are learned.
This will make a big difference.
