UNDERSTANDING AND APPLYING LENGTH CONCEPTS
• Uses metres, centimetres and millimetres to measure, compare, order, estimate and record lengths using abbreviations m, cm and mm

• Selects and uses instruments and units to measure, compare and record lengths to two decimal places
• Estimates and measures perimeters of two-dimensional shapes
• Converts between metres, centimetres and millimetres
• Identifies, measures and records temperatures using degree Celsius

UNDERSTANDING AND APPLYING AREA CONCEPTS
• Uses square centimetres and square metres to measure and estimate rectangular areas
• Records lengths using the abbreviations cm2 and m2

• Measures and compares the areas of shapes using square centimetres and square metres

UNDERSTANDING MASS, VOLUME AND CAPACITY
• Uses litres and cubic centimetres to measure, compare and estimate capacities and volumes, records capacities and volumes using the abbreviations L and cm3
• Uses kilograms to measure, compare, order and estimate masses
• Records masses using the abbreviation kg

• Uses litres and millilitres to measure, compare, estimate and record capacities and volumes, using the abbreviations L and mL
• Converts between litres and millilitres
• Compares volumes of objects by submerging each in water
• Uses kilograms and grams to measure, compare and record masses using the abbreviations kg and g
• Measures, compares and records temperatures using the symbol for degrees (°)

UNDERSTANDING TIME AND TIME ZONES
• Reads and records time to the minute, using digital notation and the terms ‘past’ and ‘to’

• Converts between seconds, minutes, hours and days
• Uses and interprets am and pm
• Reads and interprets simple timetables, timelines and calendars

KLA APPLICATION AND CONSIDERATIONS

LANGUAGES

GEOGRAPHY

• Identifies hot temperature and polar zones of the world

PDHPE

• Measures and records time in athletic, balance, circuit and partner activities
• Measures distance and length of throw in athletics, field or dimensions for courts and playing fields

SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

• Measures time Records lengths of shadows

LANGUAGES

• Reads a calendar and recognises special events in the target language
• Applies knowledge of numbers, including ordinal numbers, to express dates and birthdays

GEOGRAPHY

• Conducts fieldwork including observing, measuring, collecting and recording data Using measuring devices as fieldwork instruments

HISTORY

• Sequences people and events in time Represents time by creating timelines
