We have recently started using a programme in class to improve our times table knowledge. Times tables are so important, especially in upper key stage 2, as for most lessons and topics within maths will involve the knowledge of times tables. At the moment we have a high number of children who are not confident with these which is why this is now the focus.
Times table rockstars is a fun way for the children to get excited about practising their times tables, they can practice on their own or they can battle their friends. We will also be using this a lot in class, with the aim to implement it as a whole school.
I have included the link to the website in this blog, each child should have their log on already. If you have a smart phone or tablet then download the app for free as this appears to be an easier platform.
