As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to spread worldwide, we want to do our bit to ensure that teachers and students stay connected and children continue their learning at home with minimum disruption.
We are offering affected schools free full access to Times Tables Rock Stars – our platform for multiplication and division – throughout any school closure*. To take advantage of this offer please sign up for a trial here. No payment details are required. TT Rock Stars is easily accessible for pupils to play from home via the free app or browser and allows teachers to set specific tasks and monitor progress.
We have also activated free access to our Sessions homework bolt-on** for any school that subscribes to Times Tables Rock Stars but doesn’t currently have that bolt-on enabled. The Sessions feature allows teachers to be more purposeful about the use of TTRS at home. By setting a Session as a homework assignment, you'll know whether or not your pupils are spending as many minutes practising as you would like them to. You'll be able to set the number of games your pupils need to play, during a particular time period, then see who has completed the assignment and how well they've done.
Our free access offer is available to schools only, and does not apply to family or tutor subscriptions. If your children/pupils go to a school that has been affected by the Covid-19 outbreak, please do feel free to pass on this offer to their school teacher to take up if they wish. Please note that only authorised school personnel should sign up to this offer. If you wish to purchase a family or tutor subscription to Times Tables Rock Stars, please click this link here.
We are also offering all affected schools free access to NumBots – our sister platform that tackles addition, subtraction and number bonds – throughout any school closure*. To take advantage of this offer please sign up for a trial here. No payment details are required. NumBots is entirely pupil-led, easily accessible for pupils to play from home via the free app or browser and allows teachers to follow and praise progress.
If you are worried about the current situation you can get the latest updates from the Department for Education at COVID-19: guidance for educational settings.
We are here to help! If there is anything else you think we can do to help, please do let us know. If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected]
*Free full access is available to schools (who do not currently have a subscription) who are forced to close due to Covid-19, for up to a maximum of 60 days. If your school is closed for a longer period, please contact us at [email protected]
** Sessions bolt-on will automatically be switched on for free until 31 July 2020 for all schools that subscribe to TT Rock Stars that don’t currently have the Sessions bolt-on enabled.
