Maths

L/O: Area & Perimeter S/C: To work out the area of rectangles.

Children build on previous knowledge in Year 4 by counting squares to find the area. They then move on to using a formula to find the area. Model a rectangle on the IWB (with squares on the inside). Remind children how to work out the perimeter of the shape and then move on to working out the area. Begin by counting the squares and then introduce the formula of Length x Width. Ensure that the children know that the answer must be in cm² or m² etc… Children to copy a few examples into their books, working out both the area and perimeter of the rectangles. Move on to worksheets when confident.

Homework: Learn all the times tables for a test in books next week.

Tuesday

Maths

L/O: Area and Perimeter S/C: To work out the area of Compound Shapes.

Refresh the work on basic area and perimeter from the past few lessons. Model basic rectangles on the board and children to prove understanding of how to work out the area and perimeter of the shapes. Move on to a compound ‘L’ shape on the board. Ask children how we will work out the area of this shape? Guide children to split the shape into a series of rectangles and to then work out the area of all rectangles and then to add them together. Children to copy an example into their books. Remind them that the area is always written in cm² or m² etc… Complete worksheets when confident.
