Last week, we looked at roman numerals. By the end of year 5, children are expected to be able to read roman numerals up to 1000 (M). We learned that roman numerals involve adding numbers (eg V1 is 5 + 1 = 6) and subtracting numbers (X1X is 10 + 10 – 1 = 19). In next week’s math quiz, we will be writing some roman numerals on the board for you to read and write.


Reading Stamina is an area which, as a school, we have been focusing on heavily this year. For reading this week, you are to sit and read your own book for a minimum of 20 – 30 minutes without any breaks. For you to be able to enjoy your book and really get enthralled in it, you should find a quiet space where you will not be disturbed.
