  • to read scales in either kilograms or grams.

Key Questions:

  • When would we use kilograms or grams to measure the mass of something?
  • What’s the same, what’s different about the scales?
  • How do we know what each interval is worth?

3. Complete the White Rose Maths 'Mass and Capacity' worksheets in your maths home learning pack.

4. Challenge: As a bonus challenge, children can complete the White Rose Maths extension which can be found on the last page in the PowerPoint. The challenge is not in your home learning pack and should be completed in your workbook.
