Times Tables Rockstars

The children are loving taking part in the Times Tables Rockstars challenge! Each child has been given a log-on for the website: They are able to practise their times tables while playing tournaments, and then in class they will be tested four times a week on their allocated times tables for that week. The aim of this incentive is to help children answer problems quickly. As they get quicker they will be given a different 'rock status'.
