Children in year 4 need to have a good grasp of the times tables. To help your child, make sure they can say the numbers in sequence first. Then they need to be able to give answers out of sequence as well as work out the divisions. Encourage your child to practise in lots of different ways. Good websites to use are Transum and Hit the Button.
