As part of our commitment to make Maths exciting and high profile in our school, we are taking part in a friendly competition involving Year 3s and Year 4s from Bedford Girls’ School, Bedford Prep School and Bedford Modern School from Monday 3rd February to Thursday 6th February. It’s all done online via For every correct answer to a multiplication or division question, your child will earn their class a point. The Times Tables Rock Stars platform will calculate the class average (the number of correct answers per pupil in the class who play during the competition hours.) Winning classes in the school and in the competition as a whole will be the ones with the highest average. The prize for the overall winning class is a pizza party! All game modes (Gig, Garage, Studio, etc.) will count but only from games played between 7.30am and 7.30pm on Monday 3rd, Tuesday 4th, Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th February. In the spirit of the competition, please don’t play on the children’s behalf but by all means encourage and support them to the extent that it doesn’t cause high stress levels or impact on family plans. We suggest a limit of half an hour a day outside school hours – some will play more, some will play less. Thanks for your support.
