55 Facts Challenge
Are you looking to strengthen children’s recall of number facts?
Developing number fact fluency in Years 1 and 2 is key to enabling children to perform more complex calculations efficiently, fluently and accurately.
Spending a short time every day on basic facts quickly leads to improved fluency. You could use these grids with any year group either weekly or more frequently to assist the acquisition of basic facts.
These six grids from Inspiring Maths Education enable children to test their recall against the clock and both the teacher and children should see improvement over time. You may wish to have a time limit initially of 5 minutes. The aim is to firstly build up to answering all 55 questions accurately before working on improving their time.
