There are a range of different games they can play:

Garage – Are a set of personalised questions that children need to practise.  Once they have improved on these questions they then take another GIG and new questions to practise will be assigned to their Garage.

Jamming - Children can choose the times tables they want to practise and can learn at their own pace.

Studio – A mix of questions on all the times tables up to 12x12.  This will determine their Rock Star Status.  The faster they can answer the questions the higher their Rockstar Status.

Sound Check – 25 questions, 6 seconds per question (the most similar to the test they will sit at the end of Year 4).



Festival - A mix of questions on all the times tables up to 12x12. Children compete with players from all over the world. 

Area - Children answer questions assigned in their personalised Garage and race compete against people in their class.
