Launching Times Table Rock Stars

Learning our times tables and developing the ability to recall answers at speed is a vital part of mathematics for our students. Last week saw our Acting Principal, Beth Hanham launch ‘Time Tables Rock Stars’ in an assembly that got all the students very excited about learning their times tables.

The programme aims to make learning about times tables exciting, by having an the Rock Star clock on our interactive white board and setting the students off to complete as many answers as possible in 3 minutes, the students then call out their answers and mark their own sheets. By adding up how many correct answers each student answered in the time their rock status can be calculated.

All the students were very excited to get started and become ‘Time Table Rock Stars’ and compete with themselves.
