This week we are looking at area and perimeter.

Lessons 1 & 2

This link will help support today’s lesson:



Using the squared paper provided your challenge (should you choose to accept it) is to draw an L shape, estimate the perimeter and then measure it.

For an extra challenge, you could try drawing your initial as a shape then estimate/calculate the perimeter. You could also work out the difference between your estimate and the actual perimeter.

Remember to measure accurately and use column addition 





Lesson 3
