We 'Totally Rock' in National Times Tables Competition!

The pupils and teaching staff at Colsterworth CE School are incredibly excited to announce that they came 14th place in the whole of the East Midlands in NSPCC Rocks - a times tables competition run by the internationally renowned, award-winning app and learning platform, Times Tables Rock Stars for NSPCC Number Day.  NSPCC Rocks required children to correctly answer as many multiplication and division questions as possible, to give their class and school the best chance of winning. The competition was fierce with 85,849,445 questions answered collectively by 277,437 pupils from more than 3,870 schools and 22,268 classes around the country!  The school’s statistics were astonishing too. On average, Year 6 pupils answered 685 questions correctly per pupil, with the best performing pupil answering an amazing 2,735 questions correctly in total.  

Sarah Croxall, Maths Lead, said, ‘The pupils excelled themselves throughout NSPCC Rocks. Not only did they engage in some friendly competition but there were also some clear improvements in their recall and speed as time went on. That's always been our goal - to make learning maths basics so fun that pupils give it their all.’
