Times Tables

Times Table Travels
 
To help motivate the pupils at St Joseph's learn their times tables, they take part in a round the world journey, starting off in the United Kingdom and ending up in Brazil before trying to gain entry back in to the United Kingdom. 
 
The main idea is to complete question sheets on the various times tables and when they have completed the sheet correctly in under three minutes, they move to the next country.
