Year 5 Imperial Measures 5.6.17

Year 5 have been carrying out some practical maths activities to investigate imperial measures.  The children had to find out how many pints are in 10 litres; how tall they are in feet and inches; and much much a recipe’s ingredients were in ounces and fluid ounces.  Most of them decided that the metric system was easier to use because there are less numbers used to convert between units.
