Welcome to Emerald Class
Year 3 and 4
The Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) is a key stage 2 assessment to be taken by pupils at the end of year 4 (in June). The purpose of the MTC is to make sure the times tables knowledge is at the expected level. In the 2021/2023 academic year, the multiplication tables check (MTC) is statutory for primary schools.The MTC is an online test where the pupils are asked 25 questions on times tables 2 to 12. For every question pupils have 6 seconds to answer and in between the questions there is a 3-second rest. Questions about the 6, 7, 8, 9, and 12 times table come up more often. The questions are generated randomly based on the rules of the MTC.
A good way to prepare is start early and build a daily routine practising the times tables. With regular practise on TTRS children will learn all the questions and gain confidence. We suggest practising 10 to 15 minutes a day for optimal results.
