Children learned their times tables by playing an interactive game at home called TT Rock stars, the children are asked times tables questions and the quicker they answer determines whether they become a Rock Hero or a Rock Legend.

Claire Smith, deputy head teacher said: "The day was a great success- the children had fun whilst practising their maths skills."

Head teacher, Mrs Donna-Marie Johnson also went up against numeracy co-ordinator, Mr DarrenCutt in a times tables battle.
