# Perimeter on a Grid Lesson

This Year 4 Perimeter on a Grid lesson covers the prior learning of measuring perimeter, before moving onto the main skill of calculating the perimeter of rectilinear shapes on a grid.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
