Right Year 6, let’s try something new! Here are some videos about place value. The first one from BBC Bitesize is a history of place value. The next two are songs about how place value works with our number system. The last two explain what Roman Numerals are and how they work. We would like you to watch these in order to learn about this important area of Mathematics. Next week we will be working on Roman Numerals and place value, and would like to give you the chance to learn something before we start. You might even want to find videos or other things on the internet that tell you more about place value or Roman Numerals. Feel free to blog any comments, questions, ideas or other videos that might be useful. Let’s be experts by the time we get to school!

Wath these videos I learnt that after a decimal point it is not hundred tens , unit . It goes units tens hundreds.

Does it? What about the THS! Watch again!

Well done for watching by the way Oli!

Sorry wrote it wrong not units

No problem Oli!

I know place value now it’s easy when you think about it ; I did some in my learning log !!

THS means Thousands .

In the clip they use THS to remind you that in decimals it is tenTHS, hundredTHS and thousandTHS.

Did you enjoy the Roman Numerals?

I did and I found the songs really funny and my dad and mum whacked them as well . I have done Roman numerals before and that just made them a little more easier .

That’s great Latesha. We’ll see how deep we can take your thinking!

This is a great quiz Demi. Thank you for finding it.

I got a 7 out of 10 on this quiz and it was very fun to play.

Now go for 8!

All of the videos are all amazing but one particular got me in stitches…

All about that place !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I found the Roman numerals videos easy for me to understand and now, after watching them videos I feel a bit more confident in Roman numerals and it was fun to learn an old number system .

How would you compare Roman Numerals to what we use today?

They are different because Roman numerals are letters and today we use numbers. Roman numerals weren’t just used for counting and amounts but they were also used for Kings, for example: Henry IV and many more.

Here’s a link to a Roman numerals quiz

When on this website scroll down to year 6 and click maths then in the first section named: Place values and number sense, click on A.5 which is Roman numerals

Brilliant Tamsin. Looks like a good site.
