Times Table Rock Stars
Y3&4 Times Tables Rock Stars
To help learn their times tables, Year 3 and Year 4 have been using 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 are holding half termly competitions.
Our half termly competition was held on Wednesday 21st February 2018, we had six semi-finalists from Year 3 and six semi-finalists from Year 4. The top three pupils who had the highest score during their semi-final advanced through to the final.
Congratulations to the following pupils in Year 3 and Year 4 who made the final:
Donna, Milana, Hibbah, Thomas N, Isaac and Mohammed
It was an eventful final, with inflatable guitars, rock music and a very excited crowd, but there could only be one winner for each year group. Huge congratulations to Thomas N in Year 3 and Donna in Year 4 who both answered the most questions correctly in one minute to be crowned the winners of the Year 3 and Year 4 finals - an incredible achievement!
Thank you to parents for supporting and attending this event, with a special mention going to Mr Taylor, a Year 3 parent, who won our parents and staff competition.
We will be holding these times tables competitions on a half termly basis.
Would you like to be in our next live final?
