Hepworth and Hokusai class donned their rock wigs and reached for their air guitars as they practised their times tables on TT Rockstars in celebration of Maths Week England.

The competition runs from Monday 8th – Thursday 11th and will see students from competing schools across the nation battling it out to see who will reign as the times tables champions. Times Tables Rockstars is a fun and challenging programme that helps children to master their times tables. It prompts quick and accurate recall of multiplication and division facts using specially designed games that can be accessed online or via paper worksheets. Our children’s regular practice at home and at school is helping them to become Times Table Rockstars ⭐️🎸
