## Multiplication

Year 2 is the year that children begin to learn multiplication tables, starting with the two, five and ten times tables. Remember, it is not enough to just count up in fives (5, 10, 15, 20 etc.) the whole sentence needs to be learned (5 times 2 equals 10 etc).

Perhaps the main change is that tables are meant to be learned up to 12 times, rather than just 10.

As with addition, it is important to know that multiplication can be done in any order, but not division. The relationship between multiplication and division is now stressed more, with inverse operations for checking made more explicit in the Guidance.

We have a fantastic range of worksheets covering both Multiplication and Division. There’s plenty of practice for tables which can also be used as timed sheets to see just how well the table has been learned as well as having a go at division tables!

We also have a great collection of word problems, money worksheets and tables games to play so that in no time at all those tables become familiar friends!
