At The Wilfred Owen School we use the app or internet game called 'Times Table Rockstars' to support the children's quick recall of their multiplication tables. The children begin to use Times Table Rockstars when they start year 2. They continue to use this app throughout their time at The Wilfred Owen School. Each week certificates are awarded to the children who gained the most coins, improved their speed the most or gained the quickest speed in their class or key stage. Try and encourage your child to use TT Rocks Stars a couple of times a week.
If you need a reminder of your child's log in, please speak to their class teacher.
Numbots is aimed at boosting addition and subtraction skills for all aged children. The children begin logging in to Numbots in Reception.
All children start at the same place in Story Mode, and when they get to a certain stage they unlock challenge modes. The idea is that they play little and often, and this will significantly improve their understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts. Numbots cleverly adapts to a child's strengths or weaknesses. If a child is struggling with a particular objective, Numbots will adapt the game to support the child through their learning process.
The log-in is exactly the same as the one for TimesTable Rockstars but if you do need a reminder, please ask your child's class teacher.
