Welcome

Great Moor Junior School is a co-educational community Junior School and our pupils are with us for four years (Years 3 – 6).  During this time we hope to make learning fun and enjoyable for  everyone, helping children to become enthusiastic and confident in their learning, developing a wide range of skills and knowledge as well as a positive attitude.

We consider our school to be a team in which everyone has an important role to play: governors, staff, parents and children working together to ensure the best possible learning outcomes for our children.

We hope you find the information on this website useful.  If you would like the opportunity to visit our school you are very welcome to come and have a look around – please phone on 0161 483 4987 to make arrangements.

Image result for times table rockstars

All pupils in Years 3,4 and 5 are now using the Times Table Rock Stars website and app to improve their times tables skills. The pupils are really becoming engaged with it so to encourage some healthy competition we have published a link below to the school leaderboard.

As well as using the app/website at school the pupils are able to log in at home and they have their own username and password in the back of their homework books. The more you play the more you increase your chances of moving up the leaderboard!

The leaderboard only shows pupils Rock Star names but each pupil know theirs.  

Once you click on the link below select: login/ school name/ student then username "tesacc" and password:"bps"

Times Tables Rockstars is a website that lets children practice their times table in a fun, engaging and rewarding way. It lets them create and build a cool avatar, join a battle of bands against other classes and compete in times tables festivals against children around the world!

Click here to go to the login page

Once you are on the website you will be asked to login. Start typing in "Great Moor Junior School" and click on the school's name when it appears.

Then put in your username and password to login. Each child will have been given their logins by their teacher.

How the site works

When you login in to the website, you will be greeted by a page that looks like this

This is your dashboard, where you can play any of the four main game modes. To get back to this page at any time, click on the dashboard tab in the top left corner of the screen.

When you are in the dashboard, you will see the four main game modes at the bottom: Garage, Studio, Festival and Arena. Below is an explanation of each.

Garage

The school recommends that children play Garage by default as it is designed help them get faster. In this mode class teachers can set which times tables children can focus on.

The website will also work out which questions children struggle with so it will then ask those more often.

Additionally, children playing in the Garage will get 10 coins per correct answer rather than the 1 coin per answer in the other modes. This means more money to spend on their avatar!

Studio

Just like a rock star recording their next big album, children should play in the studio when they are ready to give their best performance. The questions can be anything up to 12x12.

When you play in the studio the website will work out your times tables speed, or how long it takes you to answer each question. Once you have played 10 games in studio the website will work out your average and you will be able to see whether you are a Rock Star, Rock Legend, or even a Rock God!

Arena and Festival

The Arena and Festival are the multiplayer versions of the game. If children want to compete against each other they can go into the arena and do battle with other children!

In the Arena, children can compete against children in their class who are playing at the same time,

In Festival however, the games are open to anyone, anywhere!

New games start every 15 seconds. Just click on the one you want to join. It will highlight in green. Wait for the game to start (timer is on the left) and crush your opponent!
