Times Tables Rock Stars (TTRS) NSPCC Rocks - Year 1 - Year 6

Dear Year 1 to 6 Parent/Carer,

As part of our commitment to make maths exciting and high profile in our school, we are taking part in a friendly competition involving schools in the UK. The competition, for NSPCC Number Day, takes place on Friday 2nd February 2024 between 07:30 and 19:30. It's all done online via

Children can play in any game mode, with every correct answer to a multiplication or division question earning themselves, their class and the school 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, subject to a daily 60-minute limit (see below)). Winning classes in the school and in the competition as a whole will be the ones with the highest average.

To support player wellbeing, there is a daily time limit of 60-minutes per player. Once the player goes beyond 60-minutes of play on that day, they will still earn coins but will no longer earn points towards the competition.

In the spirit of the competition, please don't play on their 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.
