Here at Bishop Monkton Primary, we want our pupils to become competent and confident mathematicians. We strive to embed the skills and processes necessary to enable pupils to use and apply their mathematics learning in a variety of contexts. By providing opportunities for children to build a conceptual understanding, develop their basic skills, fluency and recall, before applying their knowledge to everyday problems and challenges, we aim to develop pupils’ enjoyment of mathematics. Promoting mathematical talk enables children to articulate and discuss their thinking and reasoning, developing them as independent learners. Our pupils will leave Key Stage 2 prepared for the next step in their mathematical education.
TTRS England Rocks 2021
For Maths Week England we will be taking part in a friendly competition involving schools from England in Times Table Rock Stars!
TTRS England Rocks will run from Monday 8th November to Thursday 11th November and it's all done online via play.ttrockstars.com.
For every correct answer to a multiplication or division question, your child will earn their class a point. The Times Tables Rock Stars platform will calculate the class average (the number of correct answers per pupil in the class who play during the competition hours, subject to a daily 60-minute limit (see below). Winning classes in the school and in the competition as a whole will be the ones with the highest average.
All game modes (Gig, Garage, Studio, etc.) will count but only from games played between 7:30AM GMT and 7:30PM GMT on Monday 8th, Tuesday 9th, Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th. To support player well-being, there is a daily time limit of 60 minutes per player. In other words, each player can earn competition points for up to 60 minutes between 7.30am and 7.30pm. Once the player goes beyond 60 minutes of play on a given day, they will still earn coins but will no longer earn points towards the competition.
