Are you a member of the 144 Club ?

We have been making an extra special effort to learn our times tables and the related division facts.

E.g. 7 x 8 = 56           8 x 7 = 56    

       56 divided by 7 = 8

       56 divided by 8 = 7

Once pupils in our class can answer multiplication and division tables questions correctly within 2 minutes they automatically become a member of the...

144 Club

Check the Membership Wall in class to see if you have been inducted yet.


If you are not a 144 Club member yet, keep practising every night and Mrs Taylor will test you each day until you earn your  membership.
