Timestable Rockstars Competition
By Miss Wyatt, Maths Lead
Maths Week England takes place from 8th - 12th November 2021. It was set up in 2019 with the goal of ensuring that no children miss out on the opportunities that being a confident competent mathematician can give them.
To celebrate Maths Week England at OWPS we will be taking part in a friendly competition involving schools from England from Monday 8th November to Thursday 11th November. It’s all done online via Times Tables Rock Stars at 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. 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 wellbeing, 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.
Please encourage and support your child to take part if they wish, and hopefully we can win! Thanks for your support.
