Times Table Rockstars
Times Tables Rockstars is an online programme designed to improve children's times table fluency. Times table knowledge is at the heart of so much of the Maths curriculum that if a child is struggling to recall facts, it will hold them back from accessing some of the deeper learning.
Your child will have been given a username and password from their class teacher. When they first log on, they will be prompted to choose a 'Rockstar Name'. They can then play timed games and earn points. Your child's teacher may set challenges for games completed or battle against other classes. The primary aim is for children to compete against themselves and improve their recall speed.

Thanks to the generosity of our Friends of School team, we now have access to the mobile app version of the programme, which can be downloaded to phones and tablets.
