Welcome back King Arthur Class
I hope you have all had a super half term and enjoyed the fantastic weather we are still having ! As the weather has been so hot I decided to cut Teddy’s hair myself. It took a very long time as his hair was so fluffy that the clippers couldn’t always get through! He didn’t mind though, as you can see in the picture he is very chilled! This week I will be calling all of you at home again so just a reminder that I will be calling from a withheld number.
Remember if you would like to share you work with me, or if you have any questions about the work, then you can email me on the home learning email address.
Keep up the brilliant work King Arthur Class!
Miss you all and looking forward to speaking to you this week!
Here is a video of me going through some techniques we have used in class for multiplication and division. I hope you find it useful. I will also leave the previous videos up.

Activity 1- SPaG worksheet found at the bottom of the page
Activity 2- Reading Comprehension – sheet found at the bottom of the page

Activity 4- Write a book review for a book you have read since being at home. This can be a book you have read on your own or a book you have read with your parents. In your review include what you did and didn’t like about the book, what your favourite part and character was and why and whether you would recommend your book to other people. How many stars would you give it out of 5?
Activity 5- I would love to hear about what you have been up to during half term. Please can you write me a letter to tell me what you have been doing!
Over the next week we will be looking again at multiplication and division. We have already covered this in class and there is another video at the top of the page to explain the methods we use. Worksheets found at the bottom of the page.
- Can you count in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s? Children must be able to count to the 12th
Children must be able to count forwards in 2s, 3s 5s and 10s. Extension- Can they count backwards? Can they mentally recall times tables?
Eg 3 x 5= 15
2. I can multiply by using arrays.
You can do this practically by using pasta. For example, 3 x 5 =
You know that you have 3 groups with 5 in each group.
Count in 5s to work out answer.
3. I can multiply
Time to consolidate. Either use the method from activity 2 or the other method of just counting on your hands. Do what works best for you!
4. I can divide
You can do this practically using resources from around the house e.g. pasta. For example, if the sum was 15 ÷ 3 = you would get 15 pieces of pasta and share into three groups. You answer is how many one group has
5. I can divide
Consolidate the methods from activity 4.
Extra websites that can be used-
Use an atlas or Google Maps to find:
Europe (What countries are in Europe? What other continents are there?) Can you remember our continent song?
United Kingdom (Which countries make up the U.K? What are the capital cities of each country in the U.K?)
Germany (Which countries border Germany?)
United States of America (Which continent is the USA in?)
This half term we will be looking at the country Mexico. Can you find it on a map? What continent is it in?
The 12th of May was exactly 200 years since Florence Nightingale was born.
To mark this occasion, I would like you to do some research on Florence Nightingale. Can you find the answers to the 5 questions you came up with last week?
These videos might be useful but there are plenty of other places you will be able to find facts:
It is a very strange time for us all at the moment due to Coronavirus and we know that it is important to wash our hands carefully and keep healthy. This week I would like you to spend a bit of time thinking about the following questions.
What can we do to keep safe and healthy?
Why do we need to practice social distancing?
What are germs?

As well as sunflowers, Van Gogh also painted irises. Here is one of his paintings:
Using colouring pencils, crayons or paints, recreate this (or another of Van Gogh’s Iris paintings).
If you prefer, you could go into your own back garden and draw/paint some of the flowers that grow there.
