This week we will be looking into different types of measurements. We will be covering measurements associated with length and using centimetres and metres.
When measuring mass we will be using the units of grams and kilograms.

Design your own mythical creature. Which two different animals will you use? Will it be a human and another animal? What will it's magical power be?
