Mental maths skills are always important and help children achieve well in the subject. A secure knowledge base of number facts enables children to concentrate on solving problems efficiently without having to spend too much time on basic calculations.
I have posted some short cuts below to games which assist with the recall of basic number facts. Like anything, practise which is little and often pays the most dividends.
Each of these games can be adjusted – Start at a level where your child can answer the majority of the questions and then move through the rest of the sections slowly. Give the children the chance to return to games they have tried previously to reinforce learning
