Year 2 MeasurementYear 2 Measurement

In Year 2 children will measure using centimetres but they will also begin to measure larger objects using metres, perhaps with a metre stick. When measuring it is important to use the most suitable unit; for example, when it would be sensible to measure in metres rather than cm and what would be the most efficient equipment to do so. Our latest sets of worksheets are a great introduction to this, asking children to decide what unit would be most suitable to use.

(It is always worth bearing in mind that industry often uses the millimetre as the standard, such as when measuring the length of a Hyundai i10 car it would be given as 3,665 mm.)
