Times Tables Rock Stars

After waiting patiently for three weeks, the countdown is finally over! Times Tables Rockstars, a fantastic online resource for children to practise their times tables, was launched in a ‘rocktastic’ assembly for Y2 – Y6 children. All staff entered fully into the spirit of the day, dusting down some old outfits and joining in the fun!

The excitement built as the children entered school, with some great tunes from the 80s and 90s blaring out of the hall. Children were left st...unned as they were treated to a headline performance from aging rocker, Duff Rockbottom (aka Mr Johnson)! They then had chance to have a go on the website or app to start building their own avatars.

Regular competitions will be held between classes and year groups – pupils can even challenge each other. Can Y2 beat Y6 in a times tables battle of the bands?! Our first competition will be held in assembly next Thursday when the fastest child in each class will compete in front of an audience in a Mowden champion of champions rock slam!
