To start today complete the arithmetic below. Don't worry that you do not have a sheet, just jot your answers down. The document contains the answers too, they are on the second page.
Let's start the day with a sing and a dance again.smiley

Things to remember:


capacity is the amount of liquid a container can hold

volume is how much liquid is in the container


Measuring in litres and millilitre

A litre is much more than a millilitre.

1 litre = 1000 millilitres

We shorten litres to ‘l’ and we can shorten millilitres to 'ml'.

So we might also say:

1 l = 1000 ml


Today, you are still focussing measuring capacity but you will be using both litres and millilitres. You will record measurements as __ l and __ ml, for example 5 l and 500 ml. When you are ready, have a go at the sheets below. I have also uploaded a BBC Bitesize video to help. 

When you have marked your work, have a go at our True and False Challenge. 
If you would like to challenge yourself on your knowledge of measurement, here are some reasoning activities. Choose a couple to have a go at. 

Other activities can be found on Mathletics or your could return to the links to activities on Discovery education on Monday's page. 


I look forward to seeing your work later. smiley
