Year 2 Measurements - Length and Height
Very long distances, like the distance from the Moon to Earth, are measured in kilometres.

Year 2 Measurements - Length and Height

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 6 and 7 in year 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with choosing and using appropriate standard units to estimate and measure length or height in any direction (m/cm).

Understanding how to measure using standard units is a developing skill in KS1. Year 2 children learn how to measure accurately and how to compare lengths and heights. They should know the appropriate standard unit of measure too - for example, it would be appropriate to measure the length of a caterpillar using centimetres but not the height of a skyscraper.
