There is a lot of emphasis on measurement during Year 4. Greater accuracy is expected when measuring and recording length, weight and capacity. Children will know the meaning of ‘kilo’, ‘centi’ and ‘milli’ and record results using decimals. Reading scales where divisions are only partially recorded becomes trickier and, of course, children should become proficient with reading the time on analogue and digital clocks.

Using standard metric units to measure the length of everyday objects.
