Welcome to the maths area of the SJA website, hopefully you will find lots of useful information!

Tackling Tables:

We are pleased to announce that we have teamed up with 'Tackling Tables', a company dedicated to improving times table knowledge across the country. Children complete Tackling Tables in two ways. Firstly, they use specially designed cards to practise both multiplication and division in a small group. Secondly, they complete a number multiplication and division task sheets. These are completed at the start of each maths lesson for 5 minutes each day.  

Once children complete a task sheet three times they are awarded a certificate, so look out for these coming home soon. The aim for every child is to reach the red level questions. All children should ideally know up to their 12 times tables by the end of year 4, to meet national expectations. We are hoping that the introduction of Tackling Tables will support our aim to achieve this. Please have a look at the Youtube videos attached for more guidance about Tackling Tables.
