We are delighted to announce that Times Tables Rock Stars was awarded 'Highly Commended' in the BETT Awards 2018 "Primary Content" category. The winners were announced at a prestigious evening awards ceremony at Tobacco Dock. Many congratulations to all BETT Awards 2018 winners and finalists!
Primary Content - Times Tables Rock Stars reached the final of the BETT Awards 2018 and were nominated 'Highly Commended' by the judges of the Primary Content category. We were up against excellent and inspiring educational products, including Purple Mash, Grammar Heroes, Scholastic Reading Pro and the category winners, Oxford University Press' Numicon Interactive Whiteboard Software - well done to the Numicon team. We're a big fan of using Numicon for teaching children about repeated addition and "groups of" when learning about the structures of the tables.
A major highlight of the evening was when, in response to our name being read out, Jon Culshaw did a perfect impersonation of Ozzy Osbourne trying to answer 7 times 7!
