Lesson Objective: I can read scales in millilitres.


Useful Video:


We can use millilitres (ml for short) to measure quite small amounts of liquid. Today I would like you to read the scales on the jugs on the activity sheets and write how much is in each jug. 


Top Tip: First, check what each line on the jug represents. The scale could go up in 1s, 2s, 5s or even 20s!

There are 3 levels of work on the sheets to choose from. Choose which one suits you best.


Lesson Objective: I can create a story plan for my own version of George's Marvellous Medicine.

TASK: Use your character and setting ideas to create a story plan for your story. You can present it as a map, cartoon strip or however will help you best when you come to write it. I have added an example below to help.


The ideas you need to include:

3) IDEA! Your character decides to make a medicine.

4) First room- what do they add?

5) Second room- what do they add?
