Times Tables Rock Stars

When it comes to times tables, speed AND accuracy are important – the more facts your child remembers, the easier it is for them to do harder calculations. Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help pupils master the 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!

Scatter Tables

To use scatter tables to support your child in learning their times tables, you call out a question from the times table you are focusing on and your child has to point to the answer on the page. For example, if you are concentrating on the 5 times table, then find the Scatter Table for the 5s and call out questions like, “9 times 5” (your child points to 45), “6 times 5” (your child points to 30) or “5 times 12” (your child points to 60). Your child should be trying to get the answers correct each time and not worrying about the speed. The full set of scatter tables is provided in the document below.

Times Tables Rock Star Launch 2021-2022

Thank you to everyone for your support; the children (and staff!) released their inner rock star for the launch of our 2021-2022 Times Tables Rock Stars initiative. Teachers explained how important learning times tables is and that, with lots of practice, children need to aim for instant recall of all times tables and division facts.  Teachers explained how the times tables rock stars programme works. To begin with, if you need more than 10 seconds to answer questions correctly, you are a rock 'wannabe'. You will climb up the ladder of rock stardom as you get quicker at answering questions accurately - so 6 seconds or less you will become a 'breakthrough artist' and at 4 seconds or less you will become a 'headliner'. Your aim is to become a 'rock star' - you will achieve this when you can answer times tables questions correctly in 3 seconds or less. If your recall becomes even quicker you can become a 'rock hero' and, finally, a 'rock god'!

This year, a staff representative from each of our Copley Houses went head to head in a Rock wrangle style competition. Well done Miss Tierney for taking the crown and earning the title of Rock God!

Times Tables 'Rock Wrangle' 2021

After a final few weeks of practising, we hosted our 2021 Times Tables Rock Stars Final in June 2021. Following the final class assessments for the year, the children with the highest results in terms of accuracy and speed in each class went through to our final 'Rock Wrangle' event. This saw five children in each year group take part in a year group times tables competition against the clock, supported by rock music backing tracks and their year group rock star audience of pupils, all dressed as rock stars for the day. All the year group finalists received a certificate and rock star stationery set to mark their achievement and the winner of each year group was presented with an engraved gold medal.
