TT Rock stars
As you will already be aware, as a school we have now signed up to TT Rock Stars. The website allows the children to practise their times tables through a competitive element. When you log on, you can select different areas known as arenas to complete a range of times table tests. As the teacher, we can set the times tables which we want the children to be able to access. Your child should be using the Times Table Rockstars log in on a regular basis as part of their home learning.
What is Times Table Rock Stars?
Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practise. Each week concentrates on a different times table, with a recommended consolidation week for rehearsing the tables that have recently been practised every third week or so.
What are its aims?
The programme has one aim - to boost times table recall speeds.
What are the benefits of Times Table Rock Stars?
Incorrect answers are always immediately corrected in front of the pupil so that they start to associate the correct answer to every question. The clever code behind the scenes works out which times tables facts each pupil is consistently taking longer to answer and then it gradually starts to present these facts more frequently until pupils have mastered them. It will also ask related division questions 20% of the time in order to reinforce division facts. We expect that children access Times Table Rock Stars at least once a week to practise the times tables. However, the more children play, the more coins they can earn and the more they get to spend upgrading their Rock Star.
The Times Table Rock Stars app is available to download on iTunes and android.
