Year 6 Word Problems Measure 1

Teacher Specific Information

This Year 6 Word Problems Measure 1 activity checks pupils’ understanding of converting measurements, and finding the area, perimeter and volume of shapes. Pupils will convert measurements of juice from millilitres to litres, convert measurements of distance from kilometres to miles, calculate the area and perimeter of a shape, state whether or not the volume of a given shape is correct, and match the volume of cuboids to their measurements.
