Times Table Rockstars
All children have log in details for Times Tables Rock Stars. You can find this information in the front of their Reading Record. We would like them to play on the site as often as possible. They don't have to play for long as little and often sometimes works best. We will be choosing a Rock Star of the week in each class for children who have made the most effort/progress across the week, and will sometimes have "battles" where classes play each other.
