KS1 Maths Quiz
We use scales to measure how much different things weigh - even ourselves!

# Year 1 Measurements - Mass and Weight

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and numeracy for children aged 5 and 6 in year 1. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with measuring and recording mass and weight.

Before they learn how to record the weight or mass of an item, children in Year 1 are encouraged to talk about 'heavier' and 'lighter' when comparing objects. Eventually, Year 1 children will begin to use standard units of measurement (kilograms and grams) to measure and record the weight of objects. They should also begin to be able to estimate the weight (or mass) of an item.
