Good morning everyone, it’s Friday!!! Lots of relaxation over the weekend and enjoy the sunny weather.
Make sure you check the blog for your certificate if you have been completing all of your work this week, it will show as your name and the link is inside for your adults to download.
Well done for some more super perimeter work yesterday, I love to see that some of you have taken on the challenge.
Today we are going to be looking at area.
Area is the amount of space inside of a shape.
I always remember that the perimeter is the fence around the outside and the area is the amount of grass in the middle!
To work out the perimeter of a square or rectangle, you have to multiply the length by the width.
The width is how fat the shape in and the length is how tall it is.
If a square has 4 sides of 5cm you would do 5cm x5cm= 25m2
If a rectangle has 2 lengths of 5cm and 2 lengths of 3cm you would do 5cm x 3cm = 15cm2
There are two levels again today so decide if you want to do easy or hard based on how confident you are. If you find the hard one too tricky, you can always swap back to the easier one.
Enjoy, I look forward to seeing your work :).
