Race around the clock times tables

A worksheet that can be used to test times tables. The children write whatever times table they are doing (4x, 8x etc) in the star in the middle of the sheet and times the number on the outside of the track by that number. They then write the answers of the times table in the boxes in the inside More…of the track. Lower ability children can be asked to +2, +4 etc to the number on the outside of the track instead of completing times tables. Give children 2 or 3 minutes to complete the race. Photocopy back to back and ask higher ability children to complete both sides. I made this worksheet during a teaching practice with Year 3 - it works well.

I was looking for something to help my eight year old son with his tables - found this. He now knows his tables really well. Thank you. I teach MFL in an All-Through school and have shared this with my primary colleagues who also use it regualrly. Thumbs up from us!
