I'm not sure whether the Roman's played Bingo - but this teaching resource is aimed at giving children plenty of opportunities to read and use Roman Numerals as part of a game. The resource consists of 20 different Bingo boards featuring 11 numbers in Roman numerals and 36 different 'calling' cards.

Print out the game boards and separate into 20 individual A5 boards. Print the 36 'calling' cards, and separate into individual cards. Read more »

Importantly, they must also decide on the order of those functions and be prepared to explain everything to the rest of the class. Read more »

Telling the time - teaching strategiesTelling the time on an analogue clock is an awkward skill; there are too many muddled concepts and no clear path.
