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.














The largest weight is 5kg, the middle weight is 2kg and the smallest weight is 1kg

The 5 kg is heavier than the others, and is larger too


Fruit and vegetables sold by weight are priced per kilogram

4 bananas would be closer to 1 kg than all the others


500g is also half a kilogram

6 apples could weigh just over 1 kg, the others would not


The maximum weight on the scale is 5kg

200g is less than half a kilogram, which is 500g


They actually weigh less than half a kilogram!

A large bar of chocolate would weigh just under half a kilogram, the others would be more  especially a car!
