Metric Conversion Problems (weight)

Metric Conversion Problems (weight)

Resource developed for teaching children to convert between g and kg in context based problems. This resource includes a teaching presentation with guided examples and differentiated activities with answers - the activities can be used with different ability groups or over the course of several lessons for progression. There are four sets of questions, allowing for two days of activities moving to the next level up over the course of both days. The tasks are presented as word problems. The answers are included as slides on the presentation so children can mark their own work. The presentation allows for: Re-visiting the metric units of measurement for weight (mass) grams and kilograms (and milligrams/tons in relation to these) Encouraging children to use knowledge of halves/doubles and patterns etc. to convert mentally between grams and kilograms using knowledge the 1000g = 1kg. Explaining how to use place value (grids) for more complex calculations by going forwards or backwards three places to convert between g and kg or kg and g. The problems are designed to include more complex use of number, as well as conversions as the level of challenge increases. Includes a print-friendly Word version of all activities. For neatness of presentation, ask children to cut and stick each box as they go, showing their workings out beneath. Ideal for use in Year 5 or year 6. I would be grateful if you could leave a review once you have used this resource in class.

Measurement Mastery Activities – Year 3

Click the link below for the complete Year 3 resource pack (all 34 objectives) Year 3 Maths Mastery Pack These are a range of activities/tasks to demonstrate mastery and develop deeper thinking and deeper understanding of year 3 Measurement objectives. For each objective there are at least 3 activities/tasks along with answers (where possible). The document is set up so that you can quickly jump to the objective you are covering and then simply print the appropriate pages. In addition, almost all the activities can be adapted to suit your class’s needs if necessary. Finding or creating resources to evidence mastery and deeper understanding can take hours of time (and a lot of frustration). With this resource, you will have a handy bank of activities/tasks that you can choose from in seconds! Objectives covered: Measure, compare, add and subtract: lengths (m/cm/mm); mass (kg/g); volume/capacity (l/ml) Measure the perimeter of simple 2-D shapes Add and subtract amounts of money to give change, using both £ and p in practical contexts Tell and write the time from an analogue clock, including using Roman numerals from I to XII, and 12-hour and 24-hour clocks Estimate and read time with increasing accuracy to the nearest minute; record and compare time in terms of seconds, minutes and hours; use vocabulary such as o’clock, am/pm, morning, afternoon, noon and midnight Know the number of seconds in a minute and the number of days in each month, year and leap year Compare durations of events [for example, to calculate the time taken by particular events or tasks]

x58 Measurement (Time, length, weight, temperature)- 5 minute recap sessions

x58 Measurement (Time, length, weight, temperature)- 5 minute recap sessions

I made some ‘mini sessions’ - quick 5 minute recap sessions to use as warm ups and slot into other sessions to keep these skills active in my my children’s minds without spending too much time on them. I get them to self-assess as well so = no marking. x58 mini sessions over all. 1 activity per page, duplicated so it’s easy to print. Will need to print each page roughly 5 times to cover a whole class. Each has a WALT on it making it easy for the children to quickly tick or draw a face next to etc for self-assessment. One document is time (to the past hour, quarter hour and 5 minute sessions). The other is split into weight, length and then temperature. I use them all the time, so thought I’d upload in case others would find it useful.
