Times Tables Ninja

Written by Sarah Farrell, Andrew Jennings

Key Stage 2 First Concepts Activity and Puzzle books

Times Tables Ninja Synopsis

Photocopiable multiplication worksheets that support the National Curriculum

The essential book of times tables activities for the primary classroom, perfect for turning all pupils into Grand Masters of Times Tables! From teacher Sarah Farrell and Andrew Jennings, the creator of the bestselling Vocabulary Ninja and Write Like a Ninja.

The activities in this photocopiable book gives Key Stage 2 pupils all the tools they need to gain fluency in multiplication and division up to their 12 times tables. Each chapter begins with exercises for practising rapid recall, followed by visually engaging activities for applying knowledge to other areas of maths including shape, perimeter, scale factors, fractions and more. Fully aligned to the primary National Curriculum for maths, Times Tables Ninja features an introduction for teachers explaining the Concrete Pictorial Abstract (CPA) approach and the vocabulary to use when teaching times tables. There are certificates at the end of each section to support progression and encourage children to reach the next Ninja level.

Written by experienced teacher Sarah Farrell and edited by Andrew Jennings, this is the ultimate classroom resource for reinforcing times tables and preparing pupils for SATS and the statutory multiplication tables check.
