Times Table Rock Stars (Years 2-6 only)

 

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

Do you struggle to recall times tables facts or did you find them hard to recall when you were at school? Did you know the Government expectation is for all nine year olds to know all of the multiplication facts and corresponding division facts up to twelve times twelve? Well help is now on hand.

 

The staff at Stoke Primary have identified the need to aid and support the children with the recall of multiplication facts and as a result have signed up to use Times Tables Rock Stars. Using both paper form and online, Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice. Each week concentrates on a different times table, with a recommended consolidation week for rehearsing the tables that have recently been practiced every third week or so. This format has been very successful at boosting times tables recall speed for hundreds of thousands of pupils over the last 7 years in over 4500 schools - both primary and secondary - worldwide.

 

The benefits of the programme are:

  •  An engaging way to do daily times tables practice. TT Rock Stars has been used in many schools across the UK since 2010 and the feedback is that pupils and teachers love it.
  •  Incorrect answers are always immediately corrected in front of the pupil so that they start to associate the correct answer to every question.
  • The 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.
  • Lesson time isn't wasted - we've made sure that TT Rock Stars is lightning fast. Once pupils are logged in, they can begin a game in one click.

 

“Times tables Rock stars is fun, you can set you time speed and it has helped me understand maths questions better,” Aliya 6CM
