Olympic Times Table Challenge
First Challenge of 2019-20: Thursday 26th September 2019
When speaking to local secondary schools, the message is coming across loud and clear that one of the best ways we can prepare our children for maths at KS3 and beyond is to encourage them to be completely fluent with their times tables. With this in mind, we have devised the Olympic Times Table Challenge to motivate all the children at Burpham to learn their times tables.
The Olympic Challenge is held once a month during the lunch break and children who pass are awarded with either an Olympian sticker and certificate or a trophy badge.
Practice papers can be downloaded and edited by clicking on the links below and details of each stage of the Olympic Challenge can be found by looking at the Olympic Challenge Chart. Each challenge must be completed in 3 minutes or under and all questions answered correctly.
Once a child feels they are ready for a particular challenge, they can sign up on the list outside Mrs Marsden's office.
It would be great if you could help and encourage your child to learn their times tables and prepare them for one of the challenges and there are lots of ideas to help with this on the Maths section of this website.
