Warm up

Keep practising those mental maths skills. Today work on your times tables. Choose a number or numbers to focus on and see how many you can do in 5 minutes!

 

Measuring in grams

We can link our maths to Tasty Tuesday today! That’s because we will be weighing in grams. First, look at the helpful information on the BBC page.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zcdrsk7

 

There is an optional sheet for today should you wish to use it. However, the best way to learn to measure in grams is to have a go at using your kitchen weighing scales and have fun measuring in grams! Simply find different small items around your home, such as fruit, tins, biscuits and so on and record how much they weigh!

 

You could put the items in order from lightest to heaviest.

 

Here is an example of how to record your weighing results:

Item

Weight in grams

apple

 

banana

 

strawberry

 

Tin of tuna

 

Pack of biscuits

 

 

When you do your Tasty Tuesday activity, make sure you do all the weighing! Here is a link to a yummy flapjack recipe you might want to try, alternatively find your own simple recipe that enables you to practise your weighing skills!

This afternoon's Tasty Tuesday links in with the Maths above.

 

Have fun.
