Basic numeracy is a valuable skill and the times tables are an intrinsic aspect of mathematical understanding. It is one of the four key mathematical operations and the earlier we can arm our children, the easier it is for them to move onto higher functions.
The times tables support a wide range of mathematical strategies - e.g. area and perimeter, fractions, decimals, percentages and measures (including time) and it is essential that children understand the importance of learning multiplication facts and see how they are used and applied in everyday life.
