Hello Year 5,
We have been marking some of your maths work today and a few of us have gotten confused with area and perimeter.
To calculate perimeter, you add up all the sides of a shape. To calculate the area of a rectangle (today’s task!) you multiply each side by itself.
This link is useful for understanding how area is calculated: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zjbg87h
Make sure that you have calculated the area of the rectangles in today’s task!
