This Year 3 Measure Capacity 2 lesson covers the prior learning of measuring capacity in litres or milliltres, before moving onto the main skill of measuring capacity in litres and millilitres.

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.
