Maths KS1: Titch and Ted Learn to Read Measurements (pt 3/6)

There are lots of problems for Titch and Ted to solve in their job at the restaurant.

Ted gets to make a pizza for Dotty, but has his own ideas and decides not to use the measurements in the recipe. Things don't turn out as expected and he discovers why reading measurements carefully is important.

Ted learns that there are 60 minutes in an hour and Titch helps him to tell the time to the nearest five minutes.

This clip is from the series Titch and Ted Do Maths.

Contains some scenes which could be imitated by younger viewers. Teacher review recommended prior to use in class.
