TT Rockstars Day

Friday 7th February

The children in Key Stage 2 have been using TT Rockstars (a timestable app) for some time and wanted to help the children in KS1 to begin using it. The children in Polaris Class dressed up as their Rock Avatar and spent time with Gemini Class helping them to learn how to use the app and get them started. We look forward to seeing their timetables scores rocket over the next few months!
