Times Table Rockstars
The Year 2 children have now come home with their login letters for Times Tables Rockstars (TTRS) (TTRS uses the same login details as your child's Numbots account). This is a great online maths resource to support learning times table facts, build confidence and the speed at which the children can recall their times table facts. In Y2, the children are expected to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables by the end of the year.
We would like the children to now focus on playing TTRS for 10 minutes, 3 times a week. They can still dip into Numbots if they would like but TTRS should now become their focus.
A link to the school's login page can be found below. You must make sure our school's details are entered or the login will not work.
Within the program, their are different areas of the game to play in. The children should only play in the GARAGE section and the ARENA section. This is because each week we have set the tables that we would like the children to work on within these sections. It may seem like the children are working on the same tables repeatedly but this is exactly the idea, to build speed and automatic recall of the answer. If the children play in other sections of the game they will be asked questions from every multiplication table which would be too difficult.
If you have any question then please ask your child's teacher.
Happy Times Table Rocking!
Year 2 Team
