Each child has received their own log in account to the website: https://play.ttrockstars.com as they play they are awarded coins that can be spent to personalise their avatars. They are also given Rock Speeds as they progress. Their Rock Speed calculates the average time it takes to answer a question. Believe it or not, we already have a handful of children who can answer a question in under a second consistently for one minute straight, meaning they are Rock Heroes! We are already seeing the progress in terms of confidence, enthusiasm but also actual performance in terms of speed and accuracy!
At BSB Sanlitun, we believe that a good understanding of multiplication and division relationship underpins much of what is done in Maths. By developing that understanding within our children we hope to better equip them for future learning. It would be great if you could take a couple minutes to explore the website with your children and reinforce the importance of having a solid understanding of multiplication as well as the ability to rapidly recall facts.
