Times Tables at Seaside
Knowing your times tables and being able to recall them rapidly and accurately is an incredibly useful life skill. It also helps with so many other related areas of maths.
Times Tables Rock Stars is a fun and exciting way for children to learn their times tables. It is a carefully sequenced programme of times tables practice. Each week concentrates on a different times table, with a recommended consolidation week for rehearsing the tables that have recently been practised.
Children can take part in games online to improve their fluency and accuracy when answering times table questions. To be a Times Table Rock Star you need to answer any multiplication fact up to 12×12 in less than 3 seconds! For every right answer, you earn coins to buy accessories for your avatar. As your speed increases, you also improve your Rock Status. As well as playing independent games, children can take part in tournaments against other classes, year groups and even teachers in the school!
Children who have improved their 'Rock Status’ in each year group, receive a certificate and may even find their name on the leader board by the computing suite! As well as showing individual progress, the school leader board is updated to show which class are currently leading with the fastest recall time and best Rock Status!
