This Year 3 Measure Capacity 1 lesson covers the prior learning of millilitres, before moving onto the main skill of measuring capacity.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill.
