"Knowing your times tables off by heart is like being able to play a guitar behind your head – it makes you a rock star...a Times Table Rock Star!"
Speak to any rock legends or sports stars and they will tell you about the hours they have spent practising guitar chords and drumming riffs or aiming for goal or serving an ace. It's just the same with times tables – all wannabe rock stars and sports stars need to practise, practise, practise!
So, We say to you: "Pick up your hairbrush and your air guitar and become a times table ROCK STAR!"
