Year 7 have been working hard this year practising their times tables to rock music! Students have been practising during tutor times and taking on live times table ‘battles’ online. Students have enjoyed watching their recall speed reduce and their ‘rock status’ change from e.g. Busker to Breakthrough Act to Rock Star. Since Times Table Rock Stars was launched in January, the average recall speed has seen an improvement of 38%.
On Tuesday, 11 July, we held a Times Tables Rock Star Grand Finale where the fastest two students from each tutor group went head to head in the final countdown. They were given a rock legend entrance and treated to VIP seats and treats before bravely competing in a times tables test in front of the whole of Year 7! Huge congratulations go out to all the finalists, but a special well done goes to our ultimate rock legend who was first to finish all the questions correctly, Emilie Mwanza.
