Year 2: Measures

New Maths Curriculum (2014): Year 2 objectives.

Pupils should use standard units of measurement with increasing accuracy, using their knowledge of the number system. They should use the appropriate language and record using standard abbreviations. 

They should become fluent in telling the time on analogue clocks and recording it. 

Pupils should also become fluent in counting and recognising coins. They should use the symbols £ and p accurately and say the amounts of money confidently.  

 
Choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure length/height in any direction (m/cm); mass (kg/g); temperature (°C); capacity (litres/ml) to the nearest appropriate unit, using rulers, scales, thermometers and measuring vessels
Compare and order lengths, mass, volume/capacity and record the results using >, < and =
Read relevant scales to the nearest numbered unit
Recognise and use symbols for pounds (£) and pence (p); combine amounts to make a particular value
Solve simple problems in a practical context involving addition and subtraction of money
find different combinations of coins that equal the same amounts of money
