We have just begun our second year of Times Tables Rock Stars. Since we started back in February we have seen some amazing improvements in the children’s recall of the times tables.
We have said goodbye to our former Year 6 pupils and they have been removed from our Hall of Fame. Everyone else’s scores have been reset so that everyone starts this year from a level position.
New, easier-to-remember usernames have been created and everyone now has their own three-letter login password. This will make the accounts much more secure. If you haven’t been given your username and password yet, just ask your class teacher.
Already we have forty-one pupils on our leaderboard as ROCK HEROES. LUCAS ended last year as our NUMBER ONE ROCK HERO and he is clear at the top already this year, being the only player with a time of under half a second per times table fact.
The smiling emoji shows who is the leading ROCK HERO for their year group, so well done too to ISRAEL (Y5), OMO (Y4) and WITOLD (Y3). As the weeks go by, hopefully we will see some names from Year 1 and Year 2 in our Hall of Fame.
As the children use Times Tables Rock Stars, they can progress through a range of thirteen status positions, starting at WANNABE and progressing through GARAGE ROCKER, BUSKER, GIGGER, UNSIGNED ACT, BREAKTHROUGH ARTIST, SUPPORT ACT, HEADLINER, ROCK STAR and ROCK LEGEND before reaching the ultimate goal of becoming a ROCK HERO. Anyone who is a Breakthrough Artist or higher is already achieving the standard required to pass the Year 4 national test.
This HALL OF FAME chart can change on a daily basis. We will be publishing the list of ROCK HEROES every Sunday during term time.
