This week’s homework is Practice Makes Perfect and is due on Thursday 12 September.
I can read Roman numerals (up to 100).
The children have written the key facts for Roman numerals in their homework books and should practise this skill for their homework. Some children have chosen to take a worksheet to practise on. Some haven’t taken a worksheet as they’ve really enjoyed this learning and so can try and be creative in their practice.
Here’s what we learnt to do and a few suggestions of what their practice could look like:
We know how to:
- Write numbers up to 100 as Roman numerals.
For example, 37 = XXXVII, 54 = LIV, 42 = XLII, 91 = XCI
- Write Roman numerals up to 100 as numbers.
For example, XXVII = 27, XLI = 41, LXXXI = 81
- Solve calculations represented as Roman numerals.
For example, XVII + LXI = 78 (LXXVIII)
Your child could:
- Complete the worksheet from school.
- Write the ages of everyone in their family in Roman numerals.
- Convert these Roman numerals into numbers: LXII, XXXVIII, XLV, LXXIII, XCV, XXIV, LIX
- Create calculations written as Roman numerals (with the answers worked out).
- Write some information about themselves but with any numbers written as Roman numerals.
