Times Table Rockstars 

  • In Year 5, we will be prioritising arithmetic homework over Times Table Rockstars.
    We do encourage children to continue to practise their tables however we will not be setting a time limit. Instead, we expect arithmetic homework to be completed to the standard expected in school.
