Children in Year 6 still need plenty of practice using the metric system, in particular converting larger metric units to smaller ones. Here we are highlighting a page which looks at converting metres to centimetres, kilos to grams and litres to millilitres.
One of the trickier aspects of this is to convert a weight such as 6.09 kg into grams, which of course is 6090 g. watch out for common mistake children make of writing just 609 g.
This is one of several similar pages found in our Year 6 Measuring section of the site.
