# Measures (Year 6)

In KS2 Maths, Year Six students have learned a lot about measures. They know metric measures like mm, cm, m, and more. They're also exploring imperial measures like pint, gallon, and mile. Kids can convert units, like turning 2.8m into 280cm. Now, they're discovering imperial weight units like ounces, pounds, and tons, and how they link to grams and kilograms.

Tons, stones, pounds, and ounces are ways to measure weight. Tonnes, kilograms, and grams are used more today. Babies used to be weighed in pounds, but now it's grams. Can you switch from pounds and ounces to grams easily? Test your skills in a fun measures quiz!
