Roman Numerals Lesson

This Year 4 Roman Numerals lesson covers the prior learning of recognising the time on a clock using Roman numerals, before moving onto the main skill of recognising and calculating Roman numerals up to 100.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
