Maths Week - TTRockstars Competition
Maths Week England 8th – 11th November 2021
As part of our commitment to make Maths exciting and high profile in our school, this November we are once again taking part in a competition for Maths Week England. It is called England Rocks 2021 and is all done online via Times Tables Rock Stars.
All children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 are invited to join in by simply logging in to their Times Tables Rock Stars account and playing the games to practise their times tables and division facts.
Your child has been given their log on details and the website address is https://ttrockstars.com/. Once on the main page, click on ‘log in’ and ‘school pupils’ to enter your child’s user name and password. If your child is not sure of their log on details, please ask them to ask their class teacher who will be able to help.
For every correct answer to a multiplication or division question, your child will earn their class a point. The Times Tables Rock Stars platform will calculate the class average (the number of correct answers per pupil in the class who play during the competition hours, subject to a daily 60-minute limit (see below). Winning classes in the school and in the country as a whole will be the ones with the highest average.
All game modes (Gig, Garage, Studio, etc.) will count but only from games played between 7.30am and 7.30pm on Monday 8th, Tuesday 9th, Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th November. To support player wellbeing, there is a daily time limit of 60 minutes per player. In other words, each player can earn competition points for up to 60 minutes between 7.30am and 7.30pm. Once the player goes beyond 60 minutes of play on a given day, they will still earn coins but will no longer earn points towards the competition.
In the spirit of the competition, please don’t play on your child(ren)’s behalf but by all means encourage and support them to the extent that it does not cause high stress levels or impact on family plans.
