Rolling Numbers

To prepare children for knowing their times tables fluently, we learn our "Rolling Numbers". We do call-and-response chanting while counting off on our fingers as we go.

This will support quick recall when we learn the times tables as we move through Years 2 - 6.


By the end of Year 2 we learn to count in 2s, 5s and 10s.

By the end of Year 3 we learn to count in 3s, 4s, and 8s.

By the end of Year 4 we learn to count in 6s, 7s, 9s, 11s and 12s to get ready for the statutory Multiplication Check in Year 4.


Together with the children we have recorded our own version of Rolling Numbers that you can watch here!

We will continue to film ourselves as we get more confident through the year!
