With it being assessment week next week, the children will be recapping a variety of objectives that they have learnt throughout the year. They will be focusing on measurements and converting between each one.

# Converting between metric and imperial units

Here are some examples of metric and imperial measures of length, mass and capacity:

METRIC | IMPERIAL | |
---|---|---|

Length |
mm, cm, m, km | inch, foot, yard, mile |

Mass |
mg, g, kg | ounce (oz), pound (lb), stone |

Capacity |
ml, cl, l | pint, gallon |

You will be expected to know some common conversions between metric and imperial units. Some of these are shown below, but check with your teacher which ones you need to learn.

- 1 km = 5/8 mile
- 1 m = 39.37 inches
- 1 foot = 30.5 cm
- 1 inch = 2.54 cm
- 1 kg = 2.2 lb
- 1 gallon = 4.5 litres
- 1 litre = 1 3/4 pints
