Times Tables

At Dilkes, we know that Times Tables are the building blocks for maths, vital to a child’s success in testing and a skill they will rely on throughout their lives.  Therefore we place great importance on the need for children to learn their tables for instant recall (3 seconds per question).  The government agrees with us on this and has recently announced that from 2020 all year 4 children will sit a times table test on-line.

Times Table Rock Stars is a tool which helps children improve in their speed and accuracy with Times Tables.  As a school we have signed up to the program which gives all the children in our school free access to the website and the app.

Please click here to access the Times Table Rock Stars website or you can visit your app store to download the app on your mobile devices.  Your child has been given their user name and password but if you cannot find them please ask your class teacher who has a list.

On Friday March 16th We held a Parent Workshop on how to use Times Table Rock Stars.  You can download the information pack here and resources here.

As part of this we have set a suggested program for children and Parents to follow at home.

All the children, from Year 2 to Year 6, have undertaken a Baseline test, we will repeat this in the final week of the Summer term (week beginning 16th July).  We are confident that the children who use the information in the parent pack and follow the program will make significant improvements in their knowledge and accuracy.  You will also be able to find a copy of the baseline test here.
