Mega Maths 5.6.17 Year 5

The focus of the maths lesson was to use real life maths skills to measure length, capacity and weight using imperial and metric units. The children measured themselves in cm converting their results into feet and inches.  They also found how many pints are in a 10 litre bucket then calculated how many pints are in one litre. The last task was to convert recipe instructions from g and ml into fluid ounces and ounces.    They then proved their conversions by measuring actual ingredients such as butter, flour, sugar and milk.
