I've always been under the impression that the children need to be taught and learn the times tables up to 10x10, mainly because that is one of the strands on maths APP. "Know multiplication facts up to 10x10". However, I've been reading an Ofsted report of a school nearby and on there they have made some suggestions about how the school can improve, one says "Improve basic numeracy by teaching children their times tables up to 12 by the end of Year 4" What do you do? What do you think? What are the reasons for going up to 12x12? Any ideas welcome, thanks!
