Miles and Kilometres


Notes and Guidance

Children need to know that 5 miles is approximately equal to 8 km. They should use this fact to find approximate conversions from miles to km and from km to miles. They should be taught the meaning of the symbol ‘≈’ as “is approximately equal to”.


Maths Talk

Give an example of a length you would measure in miles or km.

If we know 5 miles ≈ 8 km, how can we work out 15 miles converted to km?

Can you think of a situation where you may need to convert between miles and kilometres?
