- To order multistep calculations.
- To use, read, write and convert between standard units.
- To convert between different units of metric measure (Year 5)
- To convert measurements of length, mass, volume and time from a smaller unit of measure to a larger unit, and vice versa, using decimal notation to up to 3 decimal places (Year 6)
-To change freely between related standard units [for example length, capacity and mass] (KS3)
This lesson consists of:
A Starter consisting of a series of progressively harder, multi-step calculations and revision of properties of numbers. A connect activity getting children to start to think about the different units used to measure length, capacity and mass.
An Interactive Whiteboard teaching introduction for both Notebook and ActivInspire flipchart, to teach the conversions between different metric units including mm, cm, metres, kilometres, litres and millilitres, grams and kilograms.
A 4-way differentiated series of tasks requiring children to convert between the various metric units of measure. A challenge activity where children complete between miles and kilometres and metres. A Place Value grid is provided as additional support for those struggling. Answer sheet provided to support marking.
A final AFL / Next Steps task, asking children to apply their knowledge to a conversion graph, which will be focus of the following days lesson.
