Interested in joining The Gordon Children's Academy?
Why not join us for one of our school tours on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th November.
These tours are limited in numbers so please email the school on firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your place and avoid disappointment.
We look forward to meeting you then.
Across the Thinking Schools Academy Trust we engage with the Times Table Rockstars to battle it out amongst each other to see who can come out on top with the most correct answers!
We were delighted to win the inaugural Rockstar Battle in December, fighting off fierce competition from our fellow Strood school Cedar Children's Academy, as well as Newbridge Junior School in Portsmouth.
More importantly, this is a fantastic resource for pupils to hone and improve their mental maths, and we strongly encourage children to set aside time in their daily home learning routine to practice on the app- even when a Rocks Battle is not ongoing.
Times Tables Rockstars is a free, accessible and fun way for pupils to test their arithemetic skills. Pupils sign-up and assign themselves to their school, enabling them to take part in our intra-school competitions.
Repetition is a key process of the affirmation of knowledge; pupils who engage with this app on a daily basis, as a supportive tool with their maths learning, will find consistent reward and improvement in their abilities. The information on the student's scores is available for their teachers to access, and continued and consistent use from your child will enable their teacher to identify areas for improvement and incorporate this into their lesson planning to help support understanding.
Times Tables Rockstars is the official name of the app, and is available on iOS and Android to download for free. Click below on your preferred device to begin downloading the app.
