Times Table Rock Stars
A new, fun way of practising times table skills that I am introducing across the school is called Times Table Rock Stars.
When it comes to times tables, speed AND accuracy are important – the more facts your child remembers, the easier it is for them to do harder calculations. Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help students master the times tables! To be a Times Table Rock Star you need to answer any multiplication fact up to 12×12 in less than 3 seconds!
There are two parts to this; one is speed recall practice in school, where children have 3 minutes to complete (correctly!) a sheet of times table or division questions, set to rock music! The other part is to access the Times Table Rock Stars website (www.ttrockstars.com) each child will be provided with a username and password from their Class Teacher. Children can play online to practise their times table skills either against themselves, against their classmates or against others from around the world! You, and they, will also be able to view a ‘heat-map’ for your child, detailing which times table questions they are secure and not secure with.
Enjoy playing and learning and become a Rock Legend!
