Times Tables Rockstars

1st February 2019
Children in Y2, 3 and 4 at SSFS have been working out their mathematically muscles in school this week for a relaunch of the Times Tables Rockstars programme which aims to boost children's skills and confidence in the recall of times tables facts.
 
The scheme supports children to work at their own pace through the times tables until they have memorised them. Even in a world of computers and spreadsheets, automatic recall of the fundamentals of maths remains an important skill for children to master, as knowing these facts inside out and back to front frees up critical space in a child's working memory to tackle more complex problem solving in mathematics.
 
Our first certificates were presented in celebration assembly today and we are looking forward to seeing who tops the leader board next week...
