What is Times Tables Rock Stars?
In either paper form or online, Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice.
Each week concentrates on a different times table, with a recommended consolidation week for rehearsing the tables that have recently been practiced every third week or so.
This format has very successfully boosted times tables recall speed for hundreds of pupils over the last 4 years at King Solomon Academy, the school in which it was created. Now it is used in over 2500 schools - both primary and secondary - worldwide.

TT Rockstar Success
We are very excited to announce that Uzair was awarded Champion Rock Star and the recent Rock Star Wrangle in Halifax. Our school competed against 49 other schools in the North of England Rock Wrangle. Uzair demonstrated his prowess and skills in rapid times table fact recall to beat the 149 other children representing their schools. He was fortunate to 'live the life of a real rock star' and took his well earned place in the co-pilot seat of Helicopter taking a ride across the vast expanse of Halifax and it's surrounding areas. Here are some photos of our 'Times Table Rock Star!'

Making maths real!
Based on a proven concrete-pictorial-abstract approach, Numicon encourages children to explore maths using structured imagery and apparatus in order to understand and explain mathematical concepts:
- Gives children confidence through demonstrating how and why they arrived at their answer
- Easily assess understanding by watching and listening to what children do and say
- Flexibility to use alongside existing resources, or as a complete maths programme
