Times Table Rockstars is an online tool the Federation has purchased to support our children with their times tables. Each child has their own personal login.
Once logged in, the children are given a rock star and can choose from some rock star names. They can also choose hair, eyes and other avatar essentials. Then the fun starts…
They can either go into one of the training modes or they can go into the rock festivals. These arenas (named after different venues such as Glastonbury or Wembley) are where the children can ‘battle’ against each other. As they answer questions correctly, they earn coins. These coins can be used to adapt their avatar and also show in the leaderboards. Each game only lasts 60 seconds.
There is also a feature where children can challenge a friend. So one will play a game and send the time to their friend, when they log in, they will see the challenge and be able to see a “ghost” of their friend’s achievements and try and beat it. Friendly competition is a good thing.
