- understand and use approximate equivalences between metric units and common imperial units such as inches, pounds and pints
- measure and calculate the perimeter of composite rectilinear shapes in centimetres and metres
- calculate and compare the area of rectangles (including squares), and including using standard units, square centimetres (cm
^{2}) and square metres (m^{2}) and estimate the area of irregular shapes - estimate volume [for example, using 1 cm
^{3}blocks to build cuboids (including cubes)] and capacity [for example, using water] - solve problems involving converting between units of time
- use all four operations to solve problems involving measure [for example, length, mass, volume, money] using decimal notation, including scaling
