Times Tables Rockstars
At Micklehurst All Saints all of the pupils in Key Stage 2 have a unique login to Times Tables Rockstars. This is on online game that is designed to help the children learn their times tables facts in a fun and exciting way!
The national curriculum offers guidance as to which times tables the children should know at different stages of their primary school life:
By the end of Year 3: Consolidate 2, 5 and 10 times tables and their related division facts and then 3, 4 and 8 times tables and their related division facts.
By the end of Year 4: all of the times tables up to 12 x 12 and their related division facts.
Years 5 and 6: the children should consolidate their speed of mental recall for all of the above multiplication and division facts.
When playing the game the children create their own personal rockstar character. The more they play and the more questions they answer correctly they earn 'virtual money' or 'coins'. The children are then able to purchase items to enhance their character. The children learn their times tables in an entertaining and engaging way!
