Today in maths, we are going to be learning to find the perimeters of shapes.


To find out what perimeter is and how to calculate it, watch the video below.

The teacher talks quite a lot at the start so begin the video at 2:10.



Complete the worksheets below after watch the video.

The PDF files contain problems for different ability levels so choose the ones best suited to yours.


If you have a ruler at home, you can also measure/calculate the perimeters of the shapes below. Alternatively, you could try drawing your own shapes and measure their perimeters. 



Note: Perimeters for the above shapes will vary based on screen size/ if you have printed them.
