The website can be accessed via this link or alternatively, the Times Table Rockstar app be downloaded for free on any iPad or compatible mobile device. It is also useful to know that local secondary schools use this programme too.


All KS2 children have been given their logins so can start straight away. Many thanks for your support, Miss Armitage

Dojos will be given for anyone who achieves an average speed of 2 seconds or lower (per question).
