Times tables underpin so much of mathematical understanding and it is vital to have quick recall (up to 12 times tables) for the 11 plus exam. 

Supporting your child to learn their times tables is crucial to help develop their maths skills and build their confidence. Some children learn by rote; for others it’s impossible. To support their learning, you will need to work out what will help your child to remember them, whether that’s listening or singing times tables songs, using flashcards, putting the tables into practice with puzzles or writing them out. The important thing is to get into the the habit of practising times tables with your child and keep revisiting them frequently.
