Bonjour and good morning to you all!

Today’s Maths task is based on different number systems, focusing on the Roman number system. The Roman number system is slightly different to ours in that they used capital letters to represent their numbers. The letters are  I, V, X, L, C, D and M. See if you can use this to complete the worksheet today. Click on this link to be taken straight to the pdf Roman-numerals

or here is a screenshot of the sheet if you do not have software to download.

In the files and Literacy tab in teams, the new word boost screens have been uploaded. See whether your answers to the definitions task set in the assignments are correct!

We have also uploaded a little lesson video on multiplication with carrying numbers. If you would like more of these, please let us know. Equally, if you found these helpful, or otherwise let us know so we can learn from this going forward. If they were a success, we may look to doing this and uploading more for more curriculum areas. Check out yesterday’s blog post and also your class Maths file on Teams for the videos.
