Distances in kilometres (Year 5)

Measuring in Year 5Distances in kilometres (Year 5)

We live in a strange world where we teach children about millimetres, centimetres, metres and kilometres but then on road signs we measure distances in miles. If we were deliberately trying to confuse children then we could hardly do better!

This week we bring some consistency to measurement by looking at distances in kilometres to various tourist attractions such as castles, historic houses and towns in the Lake District. These routes also involve adding decimals.
