Hot 132 Challenge

Times Table Champions Programme

Quick recall of multiplication and division facts is crucial to the children’s learning and progress in mathematics.
All children in Key Stage 2  take part in the school times table programme. They will have weekly tests (usually on Friday) and try to beat their time and number of correct answers.

All children start on the 2 times table. Once they can answer all 24 multiplication and division facts correctly (in less than 1 minute 35 seconds), then they will move on to the 5 and 10 times table.

To become a 'Times Table Champion', the children will need to work through their times tables (up to the 12 times table) passing the required time for each set. They will then move on to the Hot 132! There are two of these. Successfully completing the first will make them a Times Table Champion; they will be able to answer 132 questions in 6m 30s. In the second Hot 132 (The Gilpin Gold Challenge,) children will have to solve this in half the time (3m 15s) In this test, they will have to answer all 132 multiplication and division facts, comprising facts from all the times tables. Once completed, they will then receive a times table champion certificate and be added to the school's Times Table Champion Roll of Honour – 2022/2023

Children will regularly practise their times tables during daily maths lessons and other times. You can support your child by asking out of sequence facts to help them improve their speed of recall. If your child has access to a computer at home, they can also use Timetable Rockstars (  to further support them with this.
