Write out your 7x table in order.


Make sure you're practising your 7 x times tables this week.


Maybe ask an adult or brother or sister to test you.

Watch this video to help you with the short division method.

Let's look at a question together.

459 ÷ 3


This question is asking us HOW many lots of 3 go into 459 or how many 3's there are in the number 459.


Let's start by setting out the question carefully.


-> Remember to place ONE digit in EACH  square in your maths book.


This really helps to make it easier to solve the questions.










Starting with the first digit of 459 

We are looking to find out HOW many LOTS of 3 go into 4.


There is 1 lot of 3 in 4 with 1 left over.



We place the 1 above the 4


and the one left over moves onto the next digit which is 5


so now 5 becomes 15.












Let's move onto the next digit now.

The 5


BUT, it isn't 5 -> it's 5 because we added the 1 onto it.


We now want to see HOW many LOTS of 3 can go into 15


I know that 5 LOTS of 3 = 15



So, I put 5 above the 5.














Let's move onto the final digit which is 9


We need to see HOW many LOTS of 3 go into 9


I know that 3 lots of 3 = 9


So, I place 3 above the 9.














Remember:  you can check your answer back to make sure you're correct using the INVERSE. ->   3 x 153 = 459


Like yesterday, solve these questions into your red maths book


Remember one digit in each box.





Wind a synonym and antonym for each of these words. Remember, an antonym is the opposite of the word. For example, night is the antonym of day.

WALT: Plan a scene description



Today we are going to plan our scene description. The plan is so that we describe one thing at a time and don't keep jumping back and forth between locations or items. Otherwise, a reader can get confused about which part is being described. 


If you'd like to give your Viking a name, here are some typical names from the Viking period: 

Bjorn (byorn)



Cnut (ka-noot)




We are all going to start and end at the same point; where our young Viking first steps out onto the cliffs then finish with him heading down towards the ships.

Here are some examples of an opening sentence you could use:

Puffing from the steep climb up the hillside, Bjorn gave a sigh of relief as he finally crested the hill. 

As Bjorn reached the crest of the hill, he gave a gasp at the sight before him. 

It was midday before Bjorn finally reached the summit of the hill. 


It is up to you to decide the order of what is described in between. Remember, we are describing these three main points: the sky/weather, the ships and the cliffs. 


Plot your description plan onto a story mountain. You might want to add a few key words or phrases that you want to include into your description.
