Year 5: Measures

New Maths Curriculum (2014): Year 5 objectives.

Pupils should use their knowledge of place value and multiplication and division to convert between standard units.

Pupils should calculate the perimeter of rectangles and related composite shapes, including using the relations of perimeter or area to find unknown lengths. Missing number questions such as these are the beginning of algebraic understanding. They should also calculate the area of scale drawings using given measurements.

Pupils should use all four operations in problems involving time and money, including conversions (e.g. days to weeks, leaving the answer as weeks and days).
