Roman numerals on the clock

  • Year group: Year 3
  • Term: Summer
  • Topic: Roman numerals
  • Duration: 0.5 weeks
  • Keystage: KS2
  • Age Range: 7 to 8 yrs
  • Unit can be taught out of sequence: Y
  • Week Range: 4a

In this chapter, pupils tell and write the time on a clock using Roman numerals from I to XII.

Pupils that are secure with the way that the numbers are arranged on a standard clock face can start to deduce corresponding Roman numerals and derive some of the rules of the Roman number system. They apply these rules when working with larger numbers in later chapters.

Roman numerals on the clock

Mathematical discussion is a key element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

Talk Tasks are a brilliant way of enabling pupils to develop their mathematical language, thinking, understanding and confidence.

This activity explores the concept of roman numerals on the clock.

• Talk tasks are best completed in mixed attainment pairs, with pupils taking turns to listen and construct arguments
• Emphasis is on discussion rather than the solution, encouraging pupils to use key language and talk in full sentences
• Ask pupils to prove their answers in a variety of ways, using the CPA approach to support mathematical understanding and number sense

Like what you see? Mathematics Mastery is a professional development programme for teachers with a mission to transform mathematics education in the UK.

This task is just a taster of the complete classroom resources we offer. We also provide in-depth development training, online CPD, specialist support and assessment tools.

We believe all elements of our programme are vital in creating lasting change – enabling every child to enjoy and succeed in mathematics.
