Times Table Rock Stars
Times Tables Rock Stars
To help learn their times tables, Year 3 to Year 6 children all have a login for Times Tables Rock Stars. This consists of both an app for the iPad or any tablet which can be accessed at home and also a paper exercise.
The children have thoroughly enjoyed learning their times tables using this programme of carefully sequenced daily times tables practice and we have seen a huge increase in engagement levels and progress made by pupils.
By the end of year 4, pupils should be able to recall, at a rapid pace, multiplication and division facts up to 12 x 12.
To ensure children are excited and engaged in learning we hold half termly competition, where six semi-finalists from each year group in key stage 2 compete in a fasted finger first event to see how many times table they can get correct in 1 minute. The top three pupils who had the highest score during their semi-final advanced through to a final.
