Y2 Times Table Rockstars
The Year 2 children are now able to use 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 you login to our school's login page or it 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 JAMMING section. This is because 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 answers. If the children play in other sections of the game they will be asked questions from every multiplication table which would be too difficult.
The program will also ask the children related division questions. They may find these a little tricky to start with but will come more confident as we start to learn about division in the next few weeks. In the JAMMING section, you can choose if you want to work on just multiplication facts, division facts or both.
Certificates will be earned and awarded on Fridays.
If you have any questions then please ask your child's teacher.
Happy Times Table Rocking!

This is the home screen. Choose from the JAMMING or GARAGE sections.
This is the Jamming section. You will need to select either the 2, 5 or 10 times table yourself. You can also select more than one table or even all three. The Jamming section doesn't automatically choose the tables for you. You can choose in this section if you want to work on times table questions, division questions or both.
This is the garage section. Here, the tables are automatically set to 2,5 and 10s only. The program won't ask questions from all of these tables. It will focus on getting the children to learn a fact automatically before giving them new ones.
