Year 4 Mozart – Roman Numerals

Since Monday, we have been learning about Roman numerals in Maths. We know that the Roman numeral number system didn’t have a ‘0’ or the same concept of place value like we have today, meaning the numbers work very differently. We have been doing lots of work on reading and writing Roman numerals up to 100, and have used some helpful tricks to remember key Roman numeral numbers (for example V =5, X = 10). Following this, we moved on to solving some addition and subtraction calculations written with Roman numerals, meaning we had to use our arithmetic skills as well as our knowledge of Roman numerals to convert the calculations into numbers before solving them.

Here is a link to a Roman numerals quiz on Microsoft forms if you would like to test your knowledge!

Everyone has worked incredibly hard with their learning – well done, you should all be really proud!
