Times Tables Rock Stars
What is Times Tables Rock
In 2020, the children in Year 4 will have to sit Multiplication Checks
that have been set by the Government. In order to prepare for this,
Western House Academy have subscribed to Times Tables Rock Stars. Every
child at Western House Academy from Year 1 – 6 has log in details so
that they are able to practise them.
In Year 1, the children will start off learning the 2 times tables and
then move onto the 5 times tables. They need to recognise the division
facts alongside the times tables.
In Year 2, the expectations are that the children will know the 2, 5
and 10 times tables alongside the division facts.
In Year 3, the 3, 4 and 8 times tables will be added.
From Year 4, the expectations are that the children are working on all
the times tables up to 12 and so all of the times table have been added.
If your child is below Year 4 but really good at their times tables,
there are option tabs across the top of the page that will allow the
children to work on all of the times tables up to 12x12.
With every game that is played, coins are won which allow the pupil to
build their profile and add to their avatar.
To get onto the ‘stats dashboard’, children will need to have played at
least 10 times. Every week, leaders on the dashboard will be celebrated
in assembly but be warned, it might not always be speed that is
calculated, it might be judged on what you have in the ‘bank’ or how
many coins you have earned.
I has been proven that children learn more when they are having fun and
so I urge them urge them to get onto Times Tables Rock Stars and start
having fun and learn the times tables as they go.
Finally, if you want to discuss anything, please come and see me on the
playground. I love to hear from the children how well they are doing
and also from parents too.
