Times tables- TT Rockstars
In school next week you will be practising the 11 times tables. The main focus is on increasing your mental recall speed for these times tables facts. As a way to help you learn the 11 times tables, we would like you complete ‘The Elevens’ activity sheet stuck in your times table homework book.
You could also practise at home by logging on to TT Rockstars and earning coins for each times table fact you answer correctly.
You should also ensure you are reading to an adult at home at least 3 times a week and record this in your home school diary. Remember 20 reads = a house point!
Home school diaries
Please make sure home school diaries are signed each week. Home school diaries should be in school each day as they are often used to share informal messages and test results will be recorded in them each week. A reminder to make sure home school diaries are signed each week please.
