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! To be a Times Table Rock Star you need to answer any multiplication fact up to 12×12 in less than 3 seconds!
When playing the game the children create their own personal rock star 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!
The goal is for all participating rockers to be Times Table Rock Stars after 20 weeks
Please find below the Parent Handbook for Times Tables Rock Stars. This contains all the information you need to support your child to become a Times Tables Rock Star.
To use scatter tables to support your child in learning their times tables, you call out a question from the times table you are focusing on and your child has to point to the answer on the page. For example, if you are concentrating on the 5 times table, then find the Scatter Table for the 5s and call out questions like, “9 times 5” (your child points to 45), “6 times 5” (your child points to 30) or “5 times 12” (your child points to 60). Your child should be trying to get the answers correct each time and not worrying about the speed. The full set of scatter tables is provided in the document below.
