Times Table Challenge

The Rainford Tables Challenge

We are introducing a new school ‘Times Tables Challenge’ award system to encourage the children to learn their times tables.

The challenge focuses on rewarding children when they are proficient in a number of times tables.

Each level will be awarded once a set of verbal questions can be answered instantly. Pauses of longer than a couple of seconds will mean that instant recall isn’t established and more practise  is necessary.

Award assessments will be done when the teacher feels the child is ready.

The system is not designed to be a ‘weekly tables test’ but an incentive to encourage children to learn the tables.

Badges will be awarded for each level reached. These will be given out in our reward assembly on a Friday and can be worn on uniform. Once a new level is reached the badge showing the highest level is the one worn.

Bronze – 2, 5, 10 times tables

Silver – 3, 4, 8 times tables

Gold – 6, 7, 9, 11, 12 times tables (all tables)


Please download our times table resource which has some handy tips and games to help support  your child's learning.
