Years 1 & 2: Measures

This list consists of visual resources, activities and games designed to support the new curriculum programme of study in Years 1 and 2. Containing tips on using the resources and suggestions for further use, it covers aspects of:

Year 1: Compare, describe and solve practical problems for: lengths and heights, mass/weight, capacity and volume, time, measure and begin to record the following: lengths and heights, mass/weight, capacity and volume, time (hours, minutes, seconds), recognise and know the value of different denominations of coins and notes, sequence events in chronological order using language, recognise and use language relating to dates, days of the week, weeks, months and years, tell the time to the hour and half past the hour, draw the hands on a clock face to show these times.

Year 2: Choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure: length/height (m/cm); mass (kg/g), temperature (°C), capacity (litres/ml) to the nearest appropriate unit, compare and order lengths, mass, volume/capacity and record the results using >, < and =, recognise and use symbols for pounds (£) and pence (p), combine amounts to make a particular value, find different combinations of coins that equal the same amounts of money, solve simple problems in a practical context involving addition and subtraction of money of the same unit, including giving change, compare and sequence intervals of time, tell and write the time to five minutes, including quarter past/to the hour and draw the hands on a clock face to show these times, know the number of minutes in an hour and the number of hours in a day.
