Times Tables Rock Stars: Maths Competition - North Yorkshire Coast  Opportunity Area   PiXL Times Tables: Appstore for Android       Numbots - Pinner Park Primary School

Times Tables: children have login details for the Times Tables Rockstars and the PiXL Times Tables app to practice daily.

Some children may want to use their Times Tables Rockstars logins for Numbots to practice their number bonds, too.


Times Tables Rockstars Guide

Garage Room - Please try to practise in here as much as you can. I have set certain times tables for you.

Studio Room -  This is where you play to try and record your best performance and improve your rock status. Your challenge on here is to answer all times tables up to 12 x 12.

Arena - This is a bit like the garage room where tables are set for you individually. The difference is you get to play against other band-mates and challenge each other. 

Festival - This is a multiplayer version of studio.

Have fun rock stars and don't forget to challenge me!
