As we are now into the summer term, we would be thinking about Year 2 children beginning to use and have access to TT Rockstars. This is a website which allows children to practise their times tables and corresponding division skills.
As class teachers, the children are already set up with a login, but have not logged in before. Here are some instructions on how to access the website and begin practising.
1. First the children will need to access LOLA. At the bottom there is a TT Rockstars logo, which they will need to click on to access the website. If you cannot find this then please try using this link.
2. You will need to type in the school name - Landscore Primary School.
3. Their login is the first three letters of their first name and the first three letters of their surname - all joined together with no spaces and all in lower case.
eg. Miss Davey would be: misdav
The password for all children is: ABC123
4. Hopefully you are now all logged in and ready to go!
The children now need to press on the GARAGE button near the top on the left hand side. This is where they can begin practising their times tables. For the first three weeks it will just be working on the 10 times table and corresponding division facts. The children need to read the questions and have a go at working out the answer and typing the answer into the box. This will then generate a new question.
The idea is that the children become more fluent and quicker in their ability to answer questions within this times table. If we can see that your child is doing well within the 10 times table, then after 3 weeks we will give them another times table to be working on. You will find that there are 4 different types of games along the top, please can we ask for now that the children just stick to GARAGE - restricted and controlled by the teacher.
I hope this all makes sense and works for you, but please contact your class teacher if you are having any trouble.
