In 2017 Lorraine Reed read her book “TIMES TABLES FUN WITH NAUGHTY KATIE” to the children at a primary school in Bushey, Hertfordshire. The children interacted with the story by calling out the correct answers to the times tables as the story was read.
After visiting the school, Lorraine received this email from the school’s Assistant Head Claire Morton:
One of our teachers has tried out the times table story method with a class, and found it really useful in supporting those who were struggling to remember them. Our Year 2 children responded really well to the session and were learning some quite difficult times tables!
