Can you master your Times Tables and become a Rock Legend?
Ashton Vale Primary School have now launched Times Table Rock Stars! You can see pictures taken from the launch below. This is a fun, challenging and interactive way for children to practise instant recall of their multiplication and division facts. When it comes to times tables, speed AND accuracy are so important – the more facts a child remembers, the easier it is for them to complete harder calculations. To be a Times Table Rock Star they need to answer any multiplication fact up to 12×12 in less than 3 seconds!
Children are able to create their very own Rock Star- blue hair, glittery shoes, the whole works! Rock musicians are the best at what they do because they spend hours practising- It's just the same with times tables – all Times Table Rock Stars need to practise and practise and practise and practise again. The children can even challenge their teachers to a Rock Off!
