We start this term looking at one of Aesop's fables - The Town Mouse and The Country Mouse. The children will then be fully immersed in everything to do with the US state of New York - The location of our next book Tar Beach by Faith Ringgold and also the place we will learn about for Multicultural Arts Week.

Times Table Rockstars - How to join, start 'jamming' and become the ultimate times table Rock Legend...

In the coming weeks your child will be coming home with a sticker stuck in the inside the front cover of their reading record.

This sticker will contain a unique username and password for your child to log into a website called 'Times Table Rockstars'.

Your child's username will consist of (in most cases) the first three letters of their first name and the first three letters of their surname.

For example:

David Smith would be...


The username is always entered using lowercase letters.

Your child's password will be a combination of four different animals

For example:

A zebra, an elephant, a dog and a lion.

To enter the password you just click on the correct animal pictures in the right order.

To login for the first time follow these simple steps:

Open your internet browser (this should work on most tablets, PC's and laptops).

Type in this web address:

Here you will see a page asking you to type in a school name or post code...

Please type in:

Barton Junior School or CT16 2ND and click on it when it appears

You will then be able to type in your child's username.

Then CLICK ON PIN - this will take you to the page where you can click the correct combination of animals.

And that's it you're logged in, maybe for the first time...

Now you need to select your Rock Star name before you start learning your times tables, earning coins and gaining a Rockstar status.


Why have we chosen to start this in Year Two?

This software has proved so successful in providing an educational but thoroughly engaging way for the children to learn their times tables. We really value your support and assistance with helping your child log in and the learning of their times tables. 


Thank You
