I am inquiring about whether you may be interested in linking to our site https://www.mathschase.com/ from your page?
Maths Chase is a completely free site where you can quickly test your times tables. The site is a very simple game but I think kids will find it a really fun way to learn their times tables. I wondering whether this could be a useful resource for your site readers?
Thank you very much for your consideration.

In year 5 we have been learning about the asexual and the sexual reproduction of plants. We have planted a spider plant and we are observing how it grows taking measurements and recording our findings. We will be hopefully be propagating it's clones once it begins to grow runners. We are hoping that that year 5 will have their own spider plant before the Summer holiday.
Here is our first week

We are very excited to be taking part in Read for Good's Readathon, a wonderful and time-tested way of motivating children to read for pleasure.
Pupils choose whatever they like to read - from comics to classics, magazines to blogs - and the money they raise in sponsorship helps to provide books for schools, as well as a regular supply of brand new books and storyteller visits to our local major children's hospital and hospitals all over the UK. Plus, we will receive 20% of the money raised to buy books for our school - it's amazing!
You can sponsor your child online Click here to donate for the Readathon.
If you want to find out more about how the money raised helps children in hospital Click here.
Your child will also be provided with a sponsorship card if you haven't got access to the internet.
