Lesson 1

Learning Intention: To be able to use roman numerals up to 1000.


  • Begin by asking what roman numerals you can remember.
  • Can you think of when you may see roman numerals in everyday life


See your work pack for your activity questions. Enjoy :D

Lesson 2


LI: Add two 4 digit numbers


Today we will be using the column method to help us. Try 3489 + 2562. Did you need to exchange?


4653 + 2649 = 6932. Is this correct? What has gone wrong?


Now try your questions in your pack.

Lesson 3


LI: To add 4 digit numbers with more than 1 exchange.


Try: 748 + 272. How many exchanges were there?


Try 5345 + 3457. What happen to the ones and the tens here? 


How about this... 

Two cars are for sale. The first car costs £3,655. The second car costs £1,755 more. How much does the second car cost? Here we need to add the 3655 and 1755 because the question says it is 1755 more than the first car.
