Welcome to ‘Times Table Rock Stars’. Here at Lyndhurst Primary School, we are introducing a fantastic online way to develop knowledge of times tables and division facts for all pupils from Y1-Y6. Times tables are recognised as essential to access many mathematical concepts and knowledge will be assessed at the end of Y4, from September 2018, by a National test.
When it comes to times tables, speed AND accuracy are important – the more facts your child remembers, the easier it is for them to do harder calculations. Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help pupils master the times tables! Your child’s teacher has introduced them to how Times Tables Rock Stars works and the appropriate times tables to practice on a weekly basis will be allocated. This programme can be accessed online via the web address on the attached letter – your child has their own login and password.
You may also download an App for the Iphone/Ipad or Android App through which your child may practice. When they first login, your child will choose their own rock star name and design their own avatar before starting to practise.
There are two single player modes to play:
There are also multi-player modes:
Short bursts of practise on a daily basis are more effective than spending hours once a week. To make a success of this programme and ensure that your child follows the programme of practising and remains motivated we need your help. Without your praise and your reminders, without you sitting down next to them or checking their work, practising times tables will not feel important to your child.
Thank you for your support and we are sure your hard work and theirs will have a direct impact and make them a Times Table Rock Star!
