Start with the Transum times table starter - this works best if you can play against someone!

 

Then use the BBC Bitesize page to revise what you have learnt over the previous lessons and have a go at the quiz to check your knowledge. Then have a go at the True or False question before attempting the Powerpoint (don't forget to check your answers). Finally, have a go at pages 117 & 118 in your Power Maths book.

Lesson 4 - Metric units consolidation

 

Today, you need to start with a times table conga game below. Then work on pages 120, 121 and 122 of your Power Maths book.

 

Remember you can check back over previous lessons, if you aren't sure how to convert metric units of measurement.

Lesson 5 - Imperial Units

 

This lesson is about imperial units of measurement. This may not be a common term for you and will involve some new learning. This lesson isn't designed to make you an expert on imperial units, but to give you an introduction to what imperial units are and how they compare to metric units. The reason that we learn about imperial units is that although in the UK we mainly use metric as units of measurement, imperial is still commonly used. Here are some examples of how we use imperial units of measure:

 

  • Distance by road is measured in miles and yards.
  • Milk and beer is sold in pints.
  • Height is still often measured in feet and inches.
  • Fruit and vegetables may still be referred to as weight in pounds and ounces.
  • Weight of people is often referred to in stones and pounds.

 

To get started, watch the video on the BBC webpage and the second video below to give you a greater understanding of imperial units.

Now, have a go at the True or False question and then work your way through the Powerpoint before checking your answers.

 

Finally, have a go at pages 123, 126 and 129 in your Power Maths book. Don't worry about being an expert today, use these pages to help practice your fluency.
