School have recently subscribed to Times Table Rockstars. Children can use this carefully sequenced programme to practice their times tables online (either through the website or by downloading the app). Children receive rewards in the shape of virtual coins the more they practice, which they can they use in the virtual store to customise their rockstar avatar.
We hope this programme will help our pupils to improve their confidence with times table recall, which in turn will help them to handle more complex multi-step calculations and problems.
Currently only Year 5 have access to this service. However, we hope classes in other year groups will follow very soon. Watch this space!
