Ninja Maths gives our pupils the opportunity to rapidly recall multiplication facts out of sequence, answer multiplication questions in a written format and practise and learn number bonds.
To move to the next band, pupils must achieve 54 out of 56 in 2 minutes on both multiplication and number bonds. These pupils are then tested by the ‘Question Masters’ (pupils from any year group who have achieved the black band or above) in front of the whole school in our Ninja Maths assemblies. Only after the ‘Question Master’s’ questions have been answered correctly will they be awarded their coloured band.
2 x and number bonds of 10 white
Master (gold)- which is a mix of all the tables and any number bonds pair to 100, has to be done in 90 seconds.
The National Curriculum suggests that by the end of Year 3, children should be fluent in the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 times tables and at the end of Year 4 pupils will take a Multiplication Tables Check (see document below).
