Unit Learning Outcomes

1

Be able to measure length.

Assessment Criteria

  • 1.1
    Estimate measure and compare length and distance, using metric and imperial units.
  • 1.2
    Calculate length and distance, using units within the same system.
  • 1.3
    Read scales to different levels of accuracy including reading between marked divisions.
  • 1.4
    Calculate length and distance between systems, using conversion tables and scales and approximate conversion factors, for example 1in =2.54 cm.

2

Be able to measure weight.

Assessment Criteria

  • 2.1
    Estimate, measure and compare weight using metric and imperial units.
  • 2.2
    Calculate weight with units within the same system.
  • 2.3
    Read scales to different levels of accuracy including reading between marked divisions.
  • 2.4
    Calculate weight between systems using conversion tables and scales and approximate conversion factors, for example 1kg= 2.2lbs and ounces to grams.

3

Be able to measure capacity.

Assessment Criteria

  • 3.1
    Estimate, measure and compare capacity using metric and imperial units.
  • 3.2
    Calculate capacity with units within the same system.
  • 3.3
    Read scales to different levels of accuracy including reading between marked divisions.
  • 3.4
    Calculate capacity between systems using conversion tables and scales and approximate conversion factors, for example 1pint = 568ml.

4

Be able to work with shape, positional vocabulary and space.

Assessment Criteria

  • 4.1
    Recognise and name a range of 2-D representations of 3-D shapes, for example in maps and plans.
  • 4.2
    Solve problems involving mathematical properties, 2-D shapes and parallel lines.
  • 4.3
    Draw 2-D shapes in different orientations using grids, for example reflect and rotate.
  • 4.4
    Apply appropriate formulae for finding perimeters and areas of regular shapes, for example rectangular and circular surfaces.
  • 4.5
    Apply appropriate formulae for finding areas of composite shape.
  • 4.6
    Apply appropriate common formulae for finding volumes of regular shapes, for example cuboid or cylinder.
  • 4.7
    Work out dimensions from scale drawings, for example 1:2.
  • 4.8
    Follow directions using a range of positional vocabulary.
