To assist teachers and parents during the Covid-19 outbreak we have offered all non-subscribing schools full free access to Times Tables Rock Stars and our sister platform NumBots since early March 2020. We are pleased that thousands of schools across the world have taken up our offer and we hope that it has helped their pupils continue their maths learning from home during these challenging times.
From 1st July 2020, schools will now need to subscribe to maintain access for their pupils. To get a quote for your school, please login to your account and navigate to ACCOUNT > Subscriptions. The good news is that you won't need to upload the children again. All of their accounts and data from the free access period will continue as usual in the transition across to a subscription. If you don't wish to subscribe, don't worry you don't need to do anything - access will simply lapse on 30th June 2020.
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. This will run for free until 31 July 2020. 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.
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.
