Times Table Rock Stars

 

Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help your child/children to master their 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!

The goal is for all participating rockers to be Times Table Rock Stars after 20 weeks! World famous rock musicians are the best at what they do because they've spent hours practising guitar chords, writing music or playing on the drums. It's just the same with times tables – all Times Table Rock Stars need to practise and practise and practise.

It's absolutely essential that your child does a little bit of times table practice every night. In our experience, short bursts of practise on a daily basis are more effective than spending hours once a week.

Times table teaching begins with step counting in Year 1 and becomes more formal from Year 2. Children are expected to know all their times tables (up to 12x12) by the end of Year 4, and those who do will go  on to have much greater success with many areas of mathematics in Year 5 and 6: fractions, division, multiplication, ratio/proportion, problem solving. Excellent recall of times table facts frees up cognitive space for other calculating in these areas.
