Year 3: measure, compare, add and subtract: lengths (m/cm/mm); mass (kg/g); volume/capacity (l/ml), perimeter of simple 2-D shapes, add and subtract money to give change, tell and write the time from an analogue clock using Roman numerals from I to XII, 12 and 24-hour clocks, estimate and read time to the nearest minute, record and compare time in seconds, minutes and hours, know the number of seconds in a minute and the number of days in each month, year and leap year, compare durations of events.

Year 4: Convert between different units of measure [for example, km to m], measure and calculate the perimeter of a rectilinear figure(cm, m), find the area of shapes by counting squares, estimate, compare and calculate different measures, including money in pounds and pence, read, write and convert time between analogue and digital 12- and 24-hour clocks, solve problems involving time.
