New Maths Curriculum:
Year 2: Compare and order lengths, mass, volume/capacity and record the results using >, < and =
Year 2: Read relevant scales to the nearest numbered unit
Year 3: Measure, compare, add and subtract: lengths (m/cm/mm); mass (kg/g); volume/capacity (l/ml)
Year 4: Estimate, compare and calculate different measures, including money in pounds and pence
Read the numbered divisions on a scale, and interpret the divisions between them (e.g. on a scale from 0 to 25 with intervals of 1 shown but only the divisions 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20 numbered); use a ruler to draw and measure lines to the nearest centimetre (Block D)
Read, to the nearest division and half-division, scales that are numbered or partially numbered (Block D)
Compare the impact of representations where scales have intervals of differing step size (Block C)
Interpret intervals and divisions on partially numbered scales and record readings accurately, where appropriate to the nearest tenth of a unit (Block D)
Interpret a reading that lies between two unnumbered divisions on a scale (Block C and Block D)
Read and interpret scales on a range of measuring instruments, recognising that the measurement made is approximate and recording results to a required degree of accuracy; compare readings on different scales, for example when using different instruments (Block D)
