Here at St Andrew’s we are lucky enough to be able to offer a maths product called ‘Times Tables Rockstars’ to all children to practise their times tables. Each child has their own individual login and they are given time each day to practise the times tables set by their class teacher.
These tables correspond to the times tables they are practising for the Multiplication Olympics. Times Tables Rockstars is accessible via an app we have downloaded onto all of the school iPads or via the official website at https://www.ttrockstars.com/login . Your child is able, and actively encouraged, to log in at home and practise as much as they can. The product has no user limits and is available for you to download for free so your child to play as many times as they like at home.
I am launching a new competition called the ‘St Andrew’s Battle of the Bands’ for which Times Tables Rockstars will be the focus. This will track each child’s speed and progress and every half-term children will have the opportunity to compete to be entered into the ‘Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’.
This new competition is nothing for your child to worry about as it will all be part of the daily practise sessions they complete. It is designed to raise the profile of times tables and encourage all children to play more outside of school. Instructions on how to download the app is available can be found below.
If your child cannot access this product at home for whatever reason, please do let us know as we may be able to help.
I thank you in anticipation for your continued support,
Maths Subject Leader
