Measure Length 1 Lesson

This Year 1 Measure Length 1 lesson covers the prior learning of using everyday language to talk about size, before moving onto the main skill of measuring length using non-standard units.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
