Couldn't find any &'reading scales&'; worksheets for Year 5/6 so made this one, hope others find it useful! Children will need to read and interpret differing scales for weight, capacity and temperature (scales going up in 2s, 5s, 25s, 100s etc), and also complete a small section on revising measuring length. The last few thermometers are blank - can draw on scale of choice before photocopying!
