In preparation for the Multiplication Tables Check (MTC), due to be taken by year 4 pupils in June from the academic year 2019/2020 onwards, here are a selection of multiplication activities that you may find useful. The activities on this page use mixed multiplication questions. If you would like to focus on specific times tables first, take a look at the number page where you will find further activities.
Use these 10 daily multiplication questions at the start of each numeracy lesson. Just click on the image above for a copy of the worksheets. For a full academic year’s set of 10 daily questions please visit my shop here at TES.

Interactive Whiteboard Activity
Click on the image to access the PowerPoint activity.
This whiteboard activity acts as the MTC on screen test would, in that 25 random multiplication questions are shown. Each question appears for 6 seconds before a 3 second break until the next question. Here is a blank answer sheet. Print as many as you need according to the number of pupils in your group or class. The questions will be updated once a week during school term time. Next update: 23rd Sept.
Zap! is a great game that can be used for any maths facts including multiplication tables. All you need is a set of wooden craft lolly sticks which you can source from a local craft shop or here:
(affiliate link) Just write whichever multiplication questions you would like at the end of each lolly stick. Save a few (dependent on how many players/lolly sticks you are using - it’s up to you!). On the blank lolly sticks write the word ZAP!
You can choose a winner in 2 ways - play a timed game where the winner is the player with the most lolly sticks when the time is up. - the winner can be the first to collect 5,10 lolly sticks. Again, that’s up to you! 1) Each player takes it in turns to pick a lolly stick from the container. If they answer the multiplication question correctly they keep the lolly stick. If not, the question is returned to the container. 2) If a lolly stick is chosen with the word ZAP! the player loses all the lolly sticks they have collected which must then be returned to the container.
That’s it! Good luck and enjoy!
Enjoy a game of multiplication bingo covering all times tables up to and including 12 x 12.
