I hope you are all staying well and safe.

 

If your mum or dad hasn't had an email from me about Times Tables Rock Stars, then I may have the wrong or no email address for them. Ask them to email me and I will send them the details, as TTRS is a great way to learn your tables and you can challenge each other and enter the first battle - Year 5 v Year 6.
