    Has anyone heard of the times tables "scheme" where children complete various timed sheets to work their way through different award levels - diamond, sapphire etc? I am trying to find any info on this. Thanks.

    Thanks but it's neither of those. I am trying to find info on this one specific scheme that school uses.

    When I googled there were many others you will have to search.

    I did google thanks - but can't find the scheme being used in school. I have plenty of times tables activities that I can use but need to follow what is happening in school, which is why I posted as thought perhaps it is a well-known scheme and somebody might have heard of it. Then I could have got ahead by reading up what is involved.

    It may well be that someone at your school adapted or even created this one so it may not be anywhere else. I've seen a few which are all very similar to each other as schools have adapted them.

    Actually, I am under the impression that they have purchased it, as it is only a recent thing, but thanks anyway.

    My school uses a scheme like this designed in house - it takes a fair bit of administration I have to say (all run by SLT)... it runs school wide and children carry their current level of attainment from year to year.
