Assembly 22nd February: TT Rockstars!
For this week’s assembly I’m pleased to share a new resource with you called Times Tables Rockstars, which is an online tool which makes learning times tables fun: www.ttrockstars.com/.
Your child’s teacher will share a unique username and password with you via a dojo message this week and if you have any problems accessing this, I’m happy to help.
Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice.
Each week concentrates on a different times table, with a recommended consolidation week for rehearsing the tables that have recently been practised every third week or so.
This format has very successfully boosted times tables recall speed for hundreds of thousands of pupils over the last 8 years in over 16,000 schools - both primary and secondary - worldwide.
After you have watched the assembly, you can watch the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=p72cgbzdJBE which further introduces Times Table Rockstars. We are keen to get all pupils signed up as we will be using it in school throughout this term.
This half term, I've been busy practising myself. I hope you enjoy playing TT Rockstars as much as I have.
