UNDERSTANDING AND APPLYING LENGTH CONCEPTS
• Uses informal units to measure, compare and estimate lengths

• Records lengths and compares and orders shapes/objects based on length measured using informal units
• Uses metres and centimetres to measure and estimate lengths and distances
• Records lengths using the abbreviations m and cm

UNDERSTANDING AND APPLYING AREA CONCEPTS
• Uses informal units to measure, estimate and record areas

• Compares and orders surfaces based on area measured using uniform informal units

UNDERSTANDING MASS, VOLUME AND CAPACITY
• Uses uniform informal units to measure, compare, estimate and record volume and capacity
• Compares the mass of two objects by placing objects on either side of a pan balance to obtain a level balance

• Compares and orders objects based on capacity and volume measured using uniform informal units
• Uses uniform informal units to measure, compare and estimate the masses of objects
• Records masses by referring to the number and type of uniform informal unit used

UNDERSTANDING TIME AND TIME ZONES
• Uses a calendar to identify the date and determine the number of days in each month
• Tells time to the half-hour
• Names and orders months and seasons

• Uses a calendar to determine duration in months, weeks and days and compare the duration of events
• Experiences activities with duration of one hour, half or quarter of an hour, one minute and a few seconds
• Tells time to the quarter-hour, using the language of ‘past’ and ‘to’

KLA APPLICATION AND CONSIDERATIONS

HISTORY

• Names and orders months and seasons Uses words related to time to sequence events
• Uses time terminology
• Identifies significant dates
• Defines terms relating to time

SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

• Records changes to environment temperatures

LANGUAGES

• Names and orders days and months in the target language
• Tells time on the hour in the target language

GEOGRAPHY

• Recognises places exist across varying scales

SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

• Records changes using informal units example growth of plants
