Year 5 Weights and measurements worksheets by Subject
Add the adjacent numbers together and write their sum in the circle above them.
Look at each of the measurements in the left-hand column. For each one, write its decimal representation.
Look at the measurements in the left-hand column. Can you convert them into the units of measurement given in the right-hand column?
Volume is the amount of 3D space that an object occupies. Calculate the number of cubes in each shape to work out the volume (measured in cubic centimetres, cm3).
Capacity is measured in litres and millilitres. Old (imperial) measurements are gallons and pints; there are 8 pints in a gallon. Sometimes imperial measurements are still used today. Can you convert these measurements, using the chart to help you?
Can you convert the measurements in this old recipe to metric measurements using the chart of approximate equivalences?
Volume is the amount of 3D space that an object occupies. Volume can be measured in cubes. Calculate the number of cubes in each shape to work out the volume.
Can you work out the answers to these tricky word problems all about measurements?
The perimeter is the distance all the way around the outside of a 2D shape. Area is the amount of space a surface takes up. We measure area in square units. Can you answer these questions (it may help you to draw these shapes on centimetre-squared paper)?
Once you know how to find the area of a rectangle, you can use this knowledge to find the area of irregular, compound shapes as long as they are made up of rectangles or squares. Can you calculate the area and perimeter of the shapes below?
Can you read the scales and solve these potato-weight problems?
Broomsticks at the ready to work out these length problems!
Can you work out the answers to these tricky volume problems?
Area is the name we use for the amount of space a surface takes up. You could measure the area of a small space like a table or a big space like the school field. We measure area in square units. Can you calculate the area of these shapes?
Can you solve these weight problems? To help you, you might need to change kg into g.
To help you with these length calculations, change metres into centimetres and trying drawing the answers.
Can you answer these capacity problem challenges? There are four for you to tackle. You can change the amounts to ml. and draw pictures where it helps.
Do you know your hexagons from your heptagons, your pentagonal pyramids from your octagonal prisms? From 2D shapes to angles and symmetry our seventy-page Primary Geometry: shape and space learning pack covers all aspects of the national curriculum (Shape and Space) and will ensure your child can use a protractor, translate a shape and look for a mirror line. Challenge them to a game of 3D shape dominoes, make a right-angle measurer and get started!
Can you work out these weight word problems? Remember that there are 1000 grams in a kilogram...
