For pupils in KS2 (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6)
TTRockstars allows children to create an avatar and earn credits to buy items for their avatar through using their times tables knowledge. There are different modes within the game to allow the children to practice, compete against one another and compete against other primary school students across the world.
Stanburn Primary have regular competitions through TTRockstars, including class v class, and 'most improved'.
Teachers recognise how fundamental times table recall speed is to later success in maths lessons; TT Rock Stars is a website that the students love to use to practise this recall.
Incorrect answers are always immediately corrected in front of the pupil so that they start to associate the correct answer to every question.
More than that, the clever code behind the scenes works out which times tables facts each pupil is consistently taking longer to answer and then it gradually starts to present these facts more frequently until pupils have mastered them.
It will also ask related division questions 20% of the time in order to reinforce division facts.
