**In year 6, children should be able to:**

- Convert grams and kilograms and express mass/ weights in both.
- Estimate the approximates mass values of every day objects.
- Read scales, increasing and decreasing accordingly.
- Convert millilitres into litres and gallons and vice versa.
- Estimate the capacity of every day objects.
- Read scales from measuring equipment such as jugs.

In addition, the children need to be able to state common fractions, decimal equivalents and percentages of mass and capacity e.g. 1/2, 1/4, 1/10 , 40%, 75% and remember the correct unit of measure. They must be able to sort and order weights and liquids in order of size.

The children have been given revision sheets to take home for the holiday and will need to bring these in on the first day back. These links may help:

]]>- Choose 6 different idioms and write them down.
- Write an example for each that uses them in context to show that understanding
- Write the meaning of the idiom.

An example of this might be:

*The best thing since sliced bread – **This means that something is really good.*

**Tony loved his iPhone because he could check all of his emails and could shop on eBay. He thought that it was the best thing since sliced bread.**

The children can write this either on the blog or hand it in on paper.

We would like the children to give examples of when the apostrophe is used correctly but also give examples where it is not and then explain why.
