Dear parents and carers,
On Friday 7th October we are having our annual TT Rock Stars launch day in school!
On the launch day, children in Year 2 to Year 6 are invited to come in to school dressed as their rock star character from TT Rockstars (or any type of rockstar!), if they wish to. There is no charge for this! It is purely for fun and to get children excited about using TT Rockstars! If children are in Nursery to Year 1, children are invited to come into school, if they wish, in a colour, covered in shapes or numbers!
Having a secure knowledge of the times tables is vitally important for the children, as it helps them to work
efficiently when calculating in all areas of maths. Children are expected to be secure in the 2, 5 and 10 x tables by the end of year 2, and in all tables up to the 12 x tables by the end of year 4. In the summer term next year, the year 4 children will participate in a statutory year 4 Multiplication Tables Check, and more information about this will follow. We would encourage all children to practise their tables as much as they can at home, whether on TT Rockstars or any other way! If you need any support with this, please speak to your child’s class teacher.
Thank you very much for your support.
Miss Warburton/Bunny Rockula and Mrs Cox/Little Rockit (KS2 and KS1 leaders and aspiring Rock Stars!)
