Multiples, Factors and Primes

Zoom call at 9:30 for the first 15 minutes (log in details will be the same for every session). Please attend if possible.

In this lesson we are going to continue developing our knowledge of multiples, factors and prime numbers. We have spent a couple of lessons looking at these recently.


A multiple is any number that is in a given times table, so if I was looking for a multiple of 7 you could say 49 or 56 or 14 – these are all in the 7 times tables.


A factor is any number that multiplies by a different number to make your given number. A factor of 32 is 8, this multiplies by 4 so therefore 4 would be another factor.

If you are looking for a common factor, this would be a factor that appears in 2 different numbers.

Eg. 16 and 12

The common factors that appear for both of these numbers are 1, 2 and 4. Both 12 and 16 are in those times tables.


A prime number is anything that only divides by itself and 1 – this only has 2 factors – 1 and itself.


10:45 – 11:45


Anglo Saxon Village Life

Last week we began looking at the differences between Roman and Anglo Saxon houses, this week we are going to continue learning more about Anglo Saxon villages and what life was like living in them. Take a look at the presentation below to find out about what roles people played in an Anglo Saxon village and how the village looked.

Within the presentation there are 3 activities for you to complete in your blue lined book, I have attached a job sheet and some images you may wish to use for your village below your tasks.


Task 1. Identify 3 reasons why the Anglo Saxons created their own villages rather than living in the Roman villages that had already been created – think about the different style of housing we looked at last week.


Task 2. Draw a picture of an Anglo Saxon worker- choose one of the jobs from the information and draw them in the middle of your page. Once you have done this go and find some information about this Anglo Saxon job and write these facts down around your picture.


Task 3. Design an Anglo Saxon village, think about what it would look like and how it would be set out – remember from last week the shapes of the houses and the use of the doors etc.

Apostrophes for Missing Letters & Apostrophes for Single Possession

Zoom call at 11.45am for the first 20 minutes (log in details the same as previous sessions). Please attend if possible.


For the first part of this lesson you are going to focus on apostrophes for missing letters, this is what you know as a contraction. When we take two words and contract them into one.

Eg. Have not = haven’t (The apostrophe shows where the missing letter o is missing)

She will = she’ll (The apostrophe shows where the missing letters wi are missing)


For the second part of the lesson you will be focusing on using apostrophes for singular possession, this is where an item belongs to only one person or thing.

Eg. the fox’s fur – The fur belongs to the one fox

The walrus’s tusk – The tusk belongs to the wulrus (note: even when the word ends in an s for a singular possession we use an apostrophe s after this)


1:30 – 1:50

Quiet Reading Time

Find a comfortable spot for your reading or you may want to find an unusual place for a change. Ask your adult to send me a picture of you reading in your spot or tell me where it is on Class Dojo.

Make sure you have your reading record signed by an adult at home to show that you have kept up your reading and send over a picture on Class Dojo, this will earn you more dojos.


1:50 – 2:50


Reversible and Irreversible Changes

Over the last few weeks we have been investigating different materials and how they change when they are mixed with different components. Take a look at the slides below linked to reversible and irreversible changes – answer any questions you come across in your lined blue book.


Once you have read through the slides, it’s experiment time. I understand that not all of you will have the resources at home to be able to do this so I have included some videos for you to watch of the experiments so you can see what happens.

Bicarbonate of Soda and Vinegar

Still image for this video

As the video for Plaster of Paris and water doesn't seem to be working - please follow the link below, this will take you to it.


On the worksheet below can you draw what you see either from your own experiment or the videos and think about whether these changes are reversible or irreversible – could you split those materials after you have mixed them together? Write down your answers in the relevant boxes on the sheet. If you can’t print the sheet then please record this in your lined blue books.

2:50 – 3:10
