Times Tables Rock Stars launched in a banging fashion with children and teachers alike getting into character. Rock Star Day saw the re-emergence of the likes of David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson alongside new, as yet, undiscovered talent. Times tables took a front seat with rock stars across the school practising both verbally and on laptops and ipads. Meanwhile some children had the opportunity to create their own rock bands, producing promotional posters and album covers. In a special assembly, Mr Winborn whipped out his electric guitar, wowing the audience with his skills and use of special musical effects.
Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice that can be accessed online via computers, tablets and mobile phones. Teachers are currently creating profiles for children in their classes to enable those from Years 1 to 6 to access the programme.
