We recognise how fundamental times table recall speed is to later success in maths lessons. We use Times Table Rockstars to support with the rapid recall of these essential facts.
The online app has great features: 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. All children have their own login to practise every day at home. We also build time into the school day for our rock battles!
