‘Learn Its’ are addition facts and times tables facts. There are 72 Learns Its in total; 36 addition Learn Its and 36 multiplication Learn Its. These are facts that children need to learn off by heart, so when they are asked ‘What is 6+4 ?’ they are able to give the answer as quickly as they would be able to tell you their name. As soon as they know 3×5=15 they also know 5×3=15 (This is known as a ‘Switcher’).
Please work at home to make sure you really do know your Learn Its and your Switchers with INSTANT RECALL (no fingers!)
You will all receive a copy of these to glue into your Homework diaries, to ask an adult at home to help you practise these. Remember to mix up the order to really test yourself!
