CGP mental maths

Each Friday, your child will be asked to complete a page of this book to develop fluency in their mental maths. Homework will be set on Friday with Mrs Handslip, and will be marked together with Mrs Handslip the following Friday.

Please ensure that this book is in school on Friday. If the children complete the homework before Friday, encourage them to put it in their drawer ready for Friday.


We would like your child/ren to complete set A and B. Set C is the challenge/extension set. It would be fabulous to see the children challenge themselves but it is optional.


Mental maths practise is vital for gaining fluency within the operations. The exercises will cover a wide range of maths content and will help parents to see areas of strength; and also offer parents a chance to support their children with the weaker areas of learning. The aim is to speed up with their mental calculation. However, some children may find it helpful to use written prompts. Please feel free to use the space around the exercises for working out if this is helpful to your child.

TT Rockstars 

Children are also expected to visit the Times Tables Rock Stars website at least twice a week in order to practise their times tables. Children are expected to arrive in year 4 knowing the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 times tables. By the end of year 4, children are expected to be secure with all the times tables from 2 - 12. In the summer term, year 4 children across the country must complete the multiplication tables check. It is very important that all children, including those in year 5, continue to practise their times tables on a regular basis in order to meet and maintain these expectations. 

Children have been given their username and password for TT Rockstars and were asked to glue this in their homework planner. 

Remember: Knowing all your times tables at speed helps with ALMOST everything in Maths!
