LEARNING to make a difference

Friday 8th January

Starter Task


Please log into TT Rockstars. We would like you to practise your tables because we know that practise makes perfect! I know you all want to become a rockstar hero, so set yourself a challenge and try and beat your friend’s score. Don’t forget that your teachers will be able to see your scores.

Try and spend 10 minutes on Gig and Studio, and then test yourself by completing the Soundcheck.
