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.
Time for a maths boogie.

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 will be adding and subtracting volume and capacity. You have many strategies for this: number lines can help you count on or count back, you can partition your numbers before you add and subtract or you can have a go at column addition and subtraction. Use the strategy that you are comfortable with.  I have uploaded a BBC Bitesize video to help - watch the videos/ slides but don't worry about the worksheets; our worksheets are below. When you are ready, have a go at the sheets below.

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
