We are excited to let you know that we have signed up for ‘Times Tables Rock Stars’ to help support our children in learning, practising and consolidating their recall of multiplication facts.
World famous rock musicians are the best at what they do because they’ve spent hours practising guitar chords, writing music or playing on the drums. It’s just the same with times tables – all Times Table Rock Stars need is to practice and practice and practice.
It’s essential that your child does a little bit of times table practice every night. Short bursts of daily practise are more effective than spending hours once a week.
Times Table Rock Stars allows children to create a rock star character and then practise their times tables and the corresponding division facts – they are rewarded with ‘money’ and can ‘buy’ things for their rock star. They can see their own progress and compare themselves to other users.
All Holbeach children will soon be given a Times Tables Rock Star username and password and will be able to access this fantastic program on a computer or Tablet at home (just download the free app!) or log in to Times ‘Table Rock Stars’ here
