Manor Fields Primary School


Multiplication Tables Check 


The Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) is a key stage 2 assessment to be taken by pupils at the end of year 4 (in June). The purpose of the MTC is to make sure the times tables knowledge is at the expected level. In the 2021/2022 academic year the multiplication tables check (MTC) is statutory for primary schools.

The MTC is an online test were the pupils are asked 25 questions on times tables 2 to 12. For every question you have 6 seconds to answer and in between the questions there is a 3 second rest. Questions about the 6, 7, 8, 9, and 12 times table come up more often. The questions are generated randomly based on the rules of the MTC.

In year 3 we will focus on securing times table facts for the 2, 5, 10, 3 and 4 times tables.

Brilliant Bones 

In Science this term, we have been learning about animal and human skeletons. To help us to name the bones in our bodies we played Simon says and then labelled each other using the correct scientific vocabulary. 

Usain Bolt Maths 

This weeks' maths learning has been all about measuring length. To practice measuring in metres, we took inspiration from Usain Bolt. First, we watched his world record 100m run then we investigated how far we could run in 10 seconds. We all did our best sprinting but could not get close to his distance.
