Year 4 Multiplication Test


Dear Parent,

You may be aware that from June 2020 there is a new test for year 4 children called the “Multiplication Tables Check”. Here’s what you need to know:

We’re not worried. Under the national curriculum primary school children are expected to know their 12 times tables by the end of Year 4. So we’ve been preparing students to know their times tables by the end of Year 4 for quite some time now and are not concerned about the check at all.


The check itself:

  • will take place in the summer term in June.
  • is done online using a computer or tablet.
  • can be done one student at a time, in groups or as a class.
  • will take no longer than 5 minutes.
  • will feature 25 questions and children will have 6 seconds to answer each question.
  • There’s no problem solving or division just simple “3 x 4 = ?” type questions


Here are some resources that you can use to support your child in developing a sound knowledge of all their times tables up to 12 x 12. We strongly encourage you to work closely with your child on using these resources if your child is struggling with recalling their times tables knowledge.
