We have introduced a new way for students in Years 3 to 6 to practise their times tables. It is called TT Rockstars and is an online tool for students to practise their tables daily.
Each year group is set up and most have done their baseline tests to see which tables they need to work on. The students are able to practise specific tables, challenge themselves to improve their scores or play challenges against other students in their classes or mentor groups. At the moment, we are running a trial to decide if we purchase the full licence for the school.
Students will have the chance to practise daily in school for 3 minutes as part of their maths learning. Research shows that this is the minimum practice time to have a positive effect on learning – anything they do above this will only benefit them. Those students who have already completed their Superhero times table challenge will take part to help improve their recall speed and make sure they remain fresh in their minds.
Thank you for your continued support.
