During this unit, we will learn how to…

  • Choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure length/height in any direction (m/cm); to the nearest appropriate unit, using rulers.
  • Compare and order lengths, and record the results using >, < and =

Measuring Length and Height Using Standard Units

Mass, Capacity and Temperature



Mass, capacity, temperature, grams, kilograms, millilitres, litres, Celsius. 

We will revisit the idea of mass and capacity initially focusing on non-standard units such as cubes and jugs respectively. They will then look more formally at measuring using standard units. Practical activities are encouraged to support understanding.


We will learn:

  • To measure and compare mass
  • To measure mass in grams and kilograms
  • To measure capacity
  • To compare volume
  • To measure with Millilitres and Litres
  • To measure Temperature
