# Year 4 Maths Challenge Autumn 2

Hi Year 4,

This half term in topic we have been learning about the Anglo-Saxons. I was wondering if you could complete some Anglo-Saxon based maths problems?

Bronze

Put each kings reign in chronological order. You will need your knowledge of place value to work this out.

Who came first and how do you know?

Who was last and how do you know?

Silver

Put the kings in order starting with the king with the longest reign and ending with the king with the shortest reign.

Gold

A king was usually succeeded by their sons. Using the information from the table who was likely to have been Alfred the Greatโs son. How do you know?

**Gold
Alfred the Greatโs son was Edward the Elder. I know this as Alfredโs rein ended in 899 and Edwardโs rein started in 899. Meaning that when Alfred passed down the crown Edward his son was next in line.
