Welcome back to our final half term in Year 5!!
We hope you had a fabulous half term, at home, safe in the sunshine!!
How amazing is this weather?!
We will be phoning home this week to check on you and have a catch up!
Can’t wait to speak to you!!
Guinness World Records has created a new title – Highest score achieved on ‘Times Tables Rock Stars’ in one minute – and are looking for players to aim for this special accolade. All you have to do is submit a video of yourself playing a Studio game with the highest score in the world by 23:59 on 4th June 2020.
Should I enter?
Over the years we have seen some incredibly high scores in 1 minute games, like the astonishing 186! That gives you an idea of how fierce the competition will be for this Guinness World Records title. With lots of practice can you become the number 1 in the world?
Social media vs Official Attempts
We’d love you to share your efforts on social media using #FastestRocker and copying in @TTRockStars and @GWR but all Official Attempts must be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org (see below for details).
