Roman Numerals

Owls have had another great week. This week has been our computing week and our focus has been online safety. We have covered lots of different elements including cyberbullying, how to conduct effective searches using search engines and plagiarism. The children were amazed to discover that Google can find billions of pages and sort them in under 1 second – a search for ‘Stone’ from Stone Age gave us 3,510,000,000 pages in 0.61 seconds! We discovered that by adding more words and focussing on particularly important words we could cut down the number of pages and get more appropriate results for what we were looking for. Elsewhere, Mr Bridges and Mrs Fowler have been impressed with how well the children have picked up Roman Numerals and have used them to make some big numbers of their own!
