At St. Peter's we are really excited to be using Times Tables Rock Stars!
When it comes to times tables, speed and accuracy are vital – 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!
The goal is for all participating rockers to be Times Table Rock Stars after 20 weeks.
World famous rock musicians are the best at what they do because they've spent hours practising guitar chords, writing music or playing on the drums. It's just the same with times tables – all Times Table Rock Stars need to practise, practise and practise!
It's essential that your child does a little bit of times table practice every night. In our experience, short bursts of daily practise are more effective than spending hours once a week.
And this is where you come in. For your child to be fully motivated and for them to get the best out of the practice, they need your help. Without your praise and your reminders, without you sitting down next to them or checking their work, practising times tables will not feel important to your child.
Times Tables Rock Stars makes this easy for you! All pupils from Y2- Y6 have been given their own log in details which will enable them to access and practise their times tables in a fun way inside and outside of school. All pupils will be practising their times tables regularly at school, but any extra practise that they might get at home will definitely give them the edge, so that they can all aspire to be true Rock Legends!
