Maths Chest 6 - Measure
This resource from Maths Chest 6, aimed at Key Stage Two contains teachers' notes for running activities on the curriculum areas of money, length, time and weight. It is divided into nine topics which are designed to be taught in sequence at different times within the year. Each topic is organised into two sets of activities both of which include teacher-led activities, group activities and individual activities and a related investigation. At the end of each topic there are opportunities for reinforcement and extension and suggestions for cross-curricular links.
