Flip Learning – Place Value

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!
